Let R be a complete discrete valuation ring with finite residue field, and let rn be the probability that a random monic polynomial over R of degree n factors over R into linear factors. We study rn in detail. Among other things, we show that rn satisfies an interesting recursion, make a conjecture on the asymptotic behavior of rn as n goes to infinity, and prove the conjecture in the case that the residue field has two elements.
Where are the zeroes of a random p-adic polynomial?
We study the repartition of the roots of a random p-adic polynomial in an algebraic closure of Qp. We prove that the mean number of roots generating a fixed finite extension K of Qp depends mostly on
Log-Coulomb gases in the projective line of a \$p\$-field
This article extends recent results on log-Coulomb gases in a p-field K (i.e., a nonarchimedean local field) to those in its projective line P(K), where the latter is endowed with the PGL2invariant

We determine the probability that a random polynomial of degree n\$n\$ over Zp\${\mathbb {Z}}_p\$ has exactly r\$r\$ roots in Qp\${\mathbb {Q}}_p\$ , and show that it is given by a rational function of p\$p\$
Non-Archimedean Electrostatics
We introduce ensembles of repelling charged particles restricted to a ball in a non-archimedean field (such as the \$p\$-adic numbers) with interaction energy between pairs of particles proportional to

We determine the probability that a random polynomial of degree n over Z p has exactly r roots in Q p , and show that it is given by a rational function of p that is invariant under replacing p by 1
The Number of Roots of a Random Polynomial over The Field of \$p\$-adic Numbers
. We study the roots of a random polynomial over the ﬁeld of p-adic numbers. For a random monic polynomial with coeﬃcients in Z p , we obtain an asymptotic formula for the factorial moments of the
The Expected Number of Roots over The Field of p-adic Numbers
We study the roots of a random polynomial over the field of p-adic numbers. For a random monic polynomial with i.i.d. coefficients in Zp, we obtain an estimate for the expected number of roots of

Let \$\mathbb{F}_q(T)\$ be the field of rational functions in one variable over a finite field. We introduce the notion of a totally \$T\$-adic function: one that is algebraic over \$\mathbb{F}_q(T)\$ and
