%N Approximation of the 5-adic integer exp(-5) up to 5^n.

%C In p-adic field, the exponential function exp(x) is defined as Sum_{k>=0} x^k/k!. When extended to a function over the metric completion of the p-adic field, exp(x) has radius of convergence p^(-1/(p-1)) (i.e., exp(x) converges for x such that |x|_p < p^(-1/(p-1)), where |x|_p is the p-adic metric). As a result, for odd primes p, exp(p) is well-defined in p-adic field, and exp(4) is well defined in 2-adic field.

%C a(n) is the multiplicative inverse of A309902(n) modulo 5^n.

%H Wikipedia, <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P-adic_number">p-adic number</a>

%o (PARI) a(n) = lift(exp(-5 + O(5^n)))

%Y Cf. A309902.

%Y The 5-adic expansion of exp(5) is given by A309975.

%Y Approximations of exp(-p) in p-adic field: A309901 (p=3), this sequence (p=5), A309905 (p=7).
