#### 1. Introduction

In recent years, -adic analysis has received a lot of attention due to its applications in mathematical physics; see, for example, [1–11] and references therein. As a consequence, new mathematical problems have emerged, among them, the study of -adic pseudodifferential equations; see, for example, [10–16] and references therein. In this paper, we study the solutions of -adic fractional pseudodifferential equations on the Sobolev type spaces.

A -adic fractional pseudodifferential operator , which is defined by Su in 1992 [17], is an operator of the form for , where and denote the Fourier transform and the inverse Fourier transform, denotes the -vector space of the Bruhat-Schwartz functions over -adic fields , and is a positive real number. A -adic fractional pseudodifferential equation is an equation of type If , then there exists a distribution , a fundamental solution, such that is a solution.

We will also show that (2) has a solution belonging to a certain Sobolev space. Furthermore, we give conditions for the continuity and uniqueness of .

#### 2. Preliminaries

We use the notations indicated in Taibleson’s book [18]. Let us fix a prime number . The field of -adic numbers is defined as the completion of the field of rational numbers with respect to -adic norm , which is defined as follows: ; if an arbitrary rational number is represented as , where and integers and are not divisible by .

The -adic norm satisfies the strong triangle inequality .

Any -adic number can be uniquely presented as series convergent in -adic norm (the canonical presentation of ).

Define the bitwise operation of addition and multiplication of in (either from left to right carry, or not carry), then is a locally compact, nondiscrete, complete, and totally disconnected topological field.

Denote by the ring of integers in , . Let denote the Haar measure on normalized by the condition . Denote by respectively, the ball and the sphere of radius with the center at center . Obviously, , .

A complex-valued function defined on is called locally constant if for any there exists an integer satisfying Denote by the linear space of all the locally constant functions. is defined as the linear space of all locally constant functions with compact support in .

The convergence of the point in has the following definition: , if and only if for any compact subset , , hold uniformly on . The convergence in has the following meaning: , if and only if there exist the indices and which do not depend on , such that the functions with supports in the ball and with constant on the coset of , , hold uniformly in . Then, and are complete topological linear spaces. Also, denote by the Bruhat-Schwartz function space.

Denote by the distribution space of Bruhat-Schwartz function space . is a complete topological linear space under the dual topology. The convergence of the point in has the following definition: if and only if , hold for any .

The Fourier transform of is defined by the following formula: and the inverse Fourier transform by where is an additive character of the field , with value in and . The Fourier transform and inverse Fourier transform map from into .

The Fourier transform of a distribution is defined by the standard relation , .

In 1992, Su [17] has given definitions of the derivative for the -adic local fields , including derivatives of the fractional orders and real orders.

Let and . Its role is played by the operator of pseudodifferential operator which is defined as for . It is easy to see that . With the defined domain of can be extended to the space . Thus, we also have with and .

*Definition 1. *If , then is defined as -adic derivative of the order on . And if , then is defined as -adic integral of the order on . If , for any , then is called the identity operator.

In [19, 20], Qiu and Su constructed the convolution kernel of the operator . Consider
where

Here, is the indicative function of set satisfying , and is a distribution defined as

Lemma 2 (see [19, 20]). *, and satisfies the property of semigroup: . *

#### 3. Solutions of the Pseudodifferential Equations on Sobolev Type Spaces

We now consider the following pseudodifferential equation: We say that is a fundamental solution of (13) if is a solution.

Lemma 3. *If is a fundamental solution of (13), then for any constant , is also a fundamental solution. *

* Proof. *Let be a fundamental solution for (13), then
because and the constant function, , are in the domain of .

Theorem 4. *A fundamental solution of (13) is*

*Proof. *We use the definition of (8), then
The existence of a fundamental solution is equivalent to the existence of a distribution satisfying
as distributions. By Lemma 2, we have
Then, . By (11), Theorem 4 is proved.

In what follows we will introduce some relevant spaces over -adic fields (see [20]).

The Holder type space , :(1)for , we define as the continuous function space on ;(2)for , we define as the set of all distributions with the Littlewood-Paley decomposition with respect to the following norm:
Thus, becomes a Banach space with the above norm.

The Sobolev type space , :
where denotes the set of measurable functions on satisfying the condition .

Lemma 5 (see [21, 22]). *For , it holds that
*

Lemma 6. *For any and , the mapping is a well-defined continuous mapping between Banach spaces.*

*Proof. *Let . We have that
The result follows from the fact that is dense in .

Theorem 7. *Let be a -adic fractional pseudodifferential operator. Let be a positive real number satisfying . Then, the equation
**
has a unique uniformly continuous solution .*

*Proof. *Let , as is dense in and we have
In this way, we established the existence of . By Lemma 5, is uniformly continuous for .

Finally, we show that is unique. Indeed, if , then
And, thus, . Then, almost everywhere, and a fortiori almost everywhere, and by the continuity of , for any . Theorem 7 is proved.
