Nevanlinna theory has two central theorems concerning the value distribution of a meromorphic function in one variable. In this paper p- adic analogues of the two theorems for meromorphic functions on \(\{z\in {\mathbb{C}}_ p|\) \(| z| <1\}\) are given. It seems that the formulas, in particular the definition of Nevanlinna’s characteristic function, are more or less copies of the complex case. The meaning of the two p-adic theorems is not made clear in the paper. The only ingredient in the proofs is the well-known Newton-polygon of a meromorphic function.
