Title: p-adic numbers
Description: This will be our first meeting for Math Club. Notice the day change. Due to demand we will have the Math Club meetings and Putnam problem solving sessions on Tuesdays again.
This week we'll discuss the p-adic numbers. We are all familar with the real numbers, rationals, integers, etc. They have very nice properties. What happens when you change the absolute value and represent numbers in a different way? What different outcomes will happen? Are there any?
There will be pizza, so please RSVP for a rough estimate.
