Two meetings of the AMS in the fall of 1989 - one at the Stevens Institute of Technology and the other at Ball State University - included Special Sessions on the role of $p$-adic methods in number theory and algebraic geometry. This volume grew out of these Special Sessions. Drawn from a wide area of mathematics, the articles presented here provide an excellent sampling of the broad range of trends and applications in $p$-adic methods.
