Differentiation in P-minimal structures and a p-adic Local Monotonicity Theorem

Submission date: 26 March 2013.


We prove a p-adic, local version of the Monotonicity Theorem for P-minimal structures. The existence of such a theorem was originally conjectured by Haskell and Macpherson. We approach the problem by considering the first order strict derivative. In particular, we show that, for a wide class of P-minimal structures, the definable functions f : K -> K are almost everywhere strictly differentiable and satisfy the Local Jacobian Property.
