Olivierco added it Feb 10, Skolem’s -adic method, which is used in attacking certain Diophantine equationsis another powerful application of -adic numbers.

Unfortunately, in general, the answer is no, but there are classes of equations for which the answer is yes.

In the course of their undergraduate careers, most mathematics majors see little beyond “standard mathematics: P-Adic Numbers Fernando Q. This importance comes from the fact that they afford a natural and powerful language for talking about congruences between integers, and allow the use of methods borrowed from calculus and analysis for studying such problems.

P-Adic Numbers: An Introduction

Elementary Analysis in Qp I just learn better this way, there’s no doubt about it. Not only giving the background necessary to pursue the matter, but doing it in such a way that gouvwa healthy ‘hands-on experience’is generated in the process. Asking me to check you weren’t lying to me, when I know you aren’t lying or they would have caught it at the copyediting stage, is not going to get me excited. This elementary introduction offers a broad understanding of p-adic numbers.
