p-adic difference-difference Lotka-Volterra equation and ultra-discrete limit

Abstract

We study the difference-difference Lotka-Volterra equations in p-adic number space and its p-adic valuation version. We point out that the structure of the space given by taking the ultra-discrete limit is the same as that of the p-adic valuation space. Since ultra-discrete limit can be regarded as a classical limit of a quantum object, it implies that a correspondence between classical and quantum objects might be associated with valuation theory.
