Discovered on the flip of the 20^{th} century, p-adic numbers are usually utilized by mathematicians and physicists. this article is a self-contained presentation of simple p-adic research with a spotlight on analytic subject matters. It bargains many good points not often handled in introductory p-adic texts similar to topological versions of p-adic areas inside of Euclidian area, a unique case of Hazewinkel’s sensible equation lemma, and a remedy of analytic elements.
