They illustrate the theory with many examples, including matrix groups with entries in the field of real or complex numbers, or other locally compact fields such as p-adic field, isometry groups of various metric spaces, and discrete groups themselves.
But the tools used in that study, such as properties of normal families, have no analogue on a p-adic field. Here we shall use other methods, particularly the non-Archimedean Nevanlinna Theory.
In fact they established stability of Cauchy functional equations over p-adic fields. In (17), (18) and (20) the stability of Cauchy, quadratic and quartic functional equations in non-Archimedean normed spaces were investigated.
