Calculus in the p-adic domain is rather straightforward. Let us emphasize, however, that:

  • A function with a continuous derivative is not necessarily strictly differentiable.

  • The mean value theorem is valid provided the increment is small enough: |h| ≤ r p .

  • The radius of convergence of the exponential series is r p < ∞.
