11S Algebraic number theory: local and p-adic fields


Introduction

We use this page mostly to store information about p-adic numbers.

History

Applications and related fields

The p-adics are formed by completing the rationals with respect to various non-archimedean metrics; thus the material on metric spaces is likely to be relevant.
