padic Arithmetic
padic Newton Method Here we implement the wellknown Newton method to solve an algebraic equation . The algorithm is the same as in the classical case, that is, we use the iterations
The main problem is to find an appropriate starting value since convergence might be rather slow. We tried to solve this based on the following theorem. Let be a polynomial with padic integer coefficients and let there exist , such that and . Then there exists , such that and . Here is an example.
