Hi Guy's(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering If anyone new of a good link about the P-adic metric Strong triangle inequality. I am trying to constuct a proof to show that the p-adic is a metric space.

Must the proof use the Strong triangle inequality ie

[tex] d(a,c)\leq [/tex]max[tex]{d(a,b),d(b,c)}[/tex]

or can it use the normal inequality ?

[tex] d(a,c)\leq d(a,b),d(b,c)[/tex]

[tex] d(a,c)=\mida-c\mid=\mid(a-b)-(c-b)\mid[/tex]

regards
