There seem to be two conflicting definitions for p-adic valuation in the literature.
Firstly, for any non-zero integer n, we have $\nu=\nu_p(n)$ is the greatest non-negative integer such that $p^\nu$ divides $n$. Secondly, we have $|n|_p$ which is defined as $1/p^\nu$. [These definitions can be extended to the rationals.]
$\nu$ is defined as the p-adic valuation in Khrennikov, Nilson, P-adic deterministic and random dynamics (for example) and $|\cdot|_p$ is defined as the p-adic valuation in Khrennikov, P-adic and group valued probabilities, in Harmonic, wavelet and p-adic analysis (for example).
Question: Is there a preferred definition for p-adic valuation?
