Hi all,

to avoid getting several copies of each e-mail, let's please address

messages only to

*>The point is that k can be also *infinite* as integer: these have finite

*>One could argue that discreteness is only apparent but the fact p-adic

*>Fourier basis obeys Kronecker delta normalization suggests that this is
