In a previous paper, we proved that the arithmetic subderivative
DS is discontinuous at any rational point with respect
to the ordinary absolute value. In the present paper, we study this
question with respect to the p-adic absolute value. In particular,
we show that DS
is in this sense continuous at the origin
if S is finite or p ∉ S.
