### Deformations of the Riemann zeta function

Consider the Dirichlet series (for fixed $0 < a \leq 1$): $$\zeta_a(s) = \sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{a^n}{n^s}$$ which reduces to the Riemann zeta function for $a=1$. What is known about this function, ...

### Connection between Volkenborn integral and Haar measure on $\mathbb{Q}_p$

This may be a rather elementary question, but I haven't been able to figure it out on my own, and the literature appears to be eerily silent on the topic. Since $\mathbb{Q}_p$ is a locally compact ...

### Numerical analysis with p-adic numbers

How should one go about doing numerical analysis with $p$-adic numbers? By that I mean, how should one go about implementing numerical integration (using analogues of Newton-Cotes or perhaps Gaussian ...

### compact $p$-adic Lie group can be embedded into $O_K^n$ or $\text{GL}_n(K)$?

Let $K$ be a local field of charecteristic $0$ and $G$ be a compact $p$-adic Lie group of dimension $n$, then can $G$ be embedded into $O_K^n$ or $\text{GL}_n(K)$ as a closed subgroup? This is a dual ...

### Analytic continuation of $f(x)=\sqrt{\frac{1-x}{1-x^p}}$ over the p-adics

Consider the power series $f(x)=\sqrt{\frac{1-x}{1-x^p}}$ over the algebraic closure of $\mathbb{Q}_p$, defined by $f(0)=1$. What can be said about an analytic continuation "in the form of Mittag-...

### valuation of a derivative in a completion

Let $q$ be a power of a prime $p$ and $w$ be an irreducible polynomial of $\mathbb F_q[T]$. Denote by $\mathbb C_w$ the completion of an algebraic closure of $K_w$, the completion of $\mathbb F_q(T)$ ...

### Theory of integration for functions from $\mathbb{Z}_{p}$ to $\mathbb{Z}_{q}$ for distinct primes $p,q$

Let $p$ and $q$ be prime numbers. When $p=q$, Mahler's Theorem gives a complete description of $C\left(\mathbb{Z}_{p};\mathbb{Z}_{p}\right)$, the space of continuous functions from $\mathbb{Z}_{p}$ to ...

### How does an analytic space correspond to a $p$-adic Banach space

Let $K$ be a finite extension of $\mathbb{Q}_p$, and $V$ be a Banach algebra over $K$, then what is the $K$-analytic space corresponding to $V$? What is the definition of $K$-analytic space? This is ...

### Complete characteristic p perfect Tate rings are uniform?

In Lemma 7.1.6 of his lecture notes on perfectoid spaces, Bhatt states that every complete characteristic p perfect Tate ring $A$ is uniform. In the proof he uses the Banach open mapping theorem on ...

### Integral element over p-adic power series

Let $p$ be a prime number. and $R[[X]]$ be the ring of formal series with coefficients in a $p$-adic field $R$. Let $\Lambda=\mathbb{Z}_p[[X]]$. Question 1) Does there exist an explicit description ...

### History of the relation between $p$-adic measures and power series

In 1964, Kubota and Leopoldt defined the $p$-adic $L$-function by means of some $p$-adic sums (now called the Volkenborn integral which is a $p$-adic distribution). Later, Mazur (in his secret ...

### Open subgroups of finite index of p-adic semisimple groups

My set up is the following: I have an affine algebraic group $G$ over a $p$-adic field $F$, we assume that $G$ is semisimple and simply connected. I have an abstract subgroup $H\leq G(F)$ of the group ...

### For tori $S \subseteq T$, every character of $S(k)$ extends to a character of $T(k)$?

Let $k$ be a $p$-adic field, $T$ a torus over $k$, and $S$ an $k$-subtorus of $T$. If $\chi: S(k) \rightarrow \mathbb{C}^{\ast}$ is a smooth (resp. continuous) homomorphism, then does $\chi$ ...

### Relation between Gross-Koblitz and Chowla-Selberg formulas

The Chowla-Selberg formula relates the eta function with values of the gamma function at rational numbers. The eta function appears, at least in the proofs I have seen, related to values of $L$-...
### $p$-adic exponentials for $p$-adic Lie groups
Let $G$ be a $p$-adic Lie group, $\text{Lie}(G)$ its Lie algebra. Is there any reasonable notion of exponential map $\text{exp} : \text{Lie}(G)\to G$?
