Nota sulle frazioni continuep-adiche

  • Edmondo Bedocchi


In this note it is proved that for p-adic continued fractions a result analogous to Galois theorem for ordinary continued fractions holds. Moreover some results concerning the p- adic continued fraction expansions of the square roots of the integers are obtained.
