This is a common argument that is used in solving these types of equations: My library Help Advanced Book Search. SebastianBechtel Depending on your knowledge of number theory you may wish to read through the first few sections of chapter 2 of Neukirch’s book, where you can find a very nice and concise treatment of valuations from the algebraic point of view.
The completion of this space can therefore be constructed, and the set of -adic numbers is defined to be this completed space. The book is an introduction to p-adic numbers and p-adic analysis aimed at mathematics undergraduates.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A Gentle History for Teachers and Otherswhich I wrote together with Bill Berlinghoff, was published by Oxton House Publishers in mid, with the second edition appeared late in and in the “Expanded” version Math through the Ages has been translated into four other languages so far; you can touvea the covers of those editions above.
