Infinitesimals in nonstandard analysis versus infinitesimals in $$p$$-adic fields. (English) Zbl 1152.03332
Khrennikov, Andrei Yu (ed.) et al., $$p$$-adic mathematical physics. 2nd international conference, Belgrade, Serbia and Montenegro, 15–21 September 2005. Melville, NY: American Institute of Physics (AIP) (ISBN 0-7354-0318-X/hbk). AIP Conference Proceedings 826, 274-279 (2006).
Introduction: In general, infinite quantities reflect a certain non-Archimedean property of the underlying structure. For example, the fields of hyperreal numbers and $$p$$-adic numbers are non-Archimedean according to ordering and norm, respectively. We compare these structures in regard to the infinitesimal notions, construction and related transfer techniques.
