ABSTRACT

Since the work of K. Mahler about forty years ago, the
binomial coefficient polynomials have played an important role in
working with continuous functions on the padic integers which take
padic values. The qanalogue of binomial coefficients will be shown
to admit a similar role when q is a padic variable close to 1.
Mahler's construction is recovered at q = 1, and several properties of
his construction will be extended to the qanalogue.
