He starts by covering the classical theorems, then describes the integral domain of rational integers, Euclidean domains, rings of polynomials and former power series, the Chinese remainder theorem and the evaluation of a number of solutions of a linear congruence with side conditions, reciprocity laws, and finite groups.
By [Z.sub.p] we denote the ring of p-adic rational integers, [Q.sub.p] denotes the field of rational numbers, C denotes the complex number field, and [C.sub.p] denotes the completion of algebraic closure of [Q.sub.p].
As the most basic concept in the work, congruences for rational integers modulo (a natural number) are defined and their elementary properties are proved, among them the division algorithm.
