Title: Tate’s thesis and p-adic strings

Abstract: I shall explain the relation between a family of deformations of genus zero p-adic string worldsheet action and Tate’s thesis, which in particular, gives rise to an attempt of physically deriving quadratic reciprocity. I shall then propose a genus one p-adic string worldsheet action, where the key is an explicit definition of a p-adic Laplacian operator on a Tate curve, and the computation of its Green’s function. I shall also mention a very recent attempt of developing a Lorentzian version of the p-adic worldsheet action.
