Selected publications[edit]

  • Robert, Alain M.: A course in p-adic analysis. Graduate Texts in Mathematics, 198. Springer-Verlag, New York, 2000.
MathSciNet reviewer Daniel Barsky wrote: "Robert's book is aimed at an intermediate level between the very specialized monographs and the elementary texts. It has no equal in the marketplace, because it covers practically all of p-adic analysis of one variable (except the rationality of the zeta function of an algebraic variety over a finite field and the theory of p-adic differential equations) and contains numerous results that were accessible only in articles or even in preprints" here.
