Discovered at the turn of the 20th century, p-adic numbers are frequently used by mathematicians and physicists. This text is a self-contained presentation of basic p-adic analysis with a focus on analytic topics. It offers many features rarely treated in introductory p-adic texts such as topological models of p-adic spaces inside Euclidian space, a special case of Hazewinkel's functional equation lemma, and a treatment of analytic elements.
1 p-adic Numbers.- 2 Finite Extensions of the Field of p-adic Numbers.- 3 Construction of Universal p-adic Fields.- 4 Continuous Functions on Zp.- 5 Differentiation.- 6 Analytic Functions and Elements.- 7 Special Functions, Congruences.- Specific References for the Text.- Tables.- Basic Principles of Ultrametric Analysis.- Conventions, Notation, Terminology.
