Let be a Field of Characteristic 0 (e.g., the rationals ) and
let be a Sequence of elements of which satisfies a difference equation of the form

where the Coefficients are fixed elements of . Then, for any , we have

The proof involves embedding certain fields inside the *p*-adic Number for some
Prime , and using properties of zeros of Power series over (Strassman's Theorem).
