 Full Description

Manifolds over complete nonarchimedean fields together with notions like tangent spaces and vector fields form a convenient geometric language to express the basic formalism of padic analysis. The volume starts with a selfcontained and detailed introduction to this language. This includes the discussion of spaces of locally analytic functions as topological vector spaces, important for applications in representation theory. The author then sets up the analytic foundations of the theory of padic Lie groups and develops the relation between padic Lie groups and their Lie algebras. The second part of the book contains, for the first time in a textbook, a detailed exposition of Lazard's algebraic approach to compact padic Lie groups, via his notion of a pvaluation, together with its application to the structure of completed group rings.
