P-Adic Nevanlinna Theory Outside of a Hole

  • Alain EscassutEmail author

In this paper, we will establish the Nevanlinna theory for meromorphic functions outside a hole in \(\mathbb {K}\). We also give several applications of the theory to meromorphic functions out side a hole, such as results on branched values. Motzkin factors, known for analytic elements, play here an essential role.
