In October(??) 2011, Leonard Susskind gave a talk and with few other people wrote a paper about P-adic numbers and measure problems(??) in cosmology. Has there been any recent talks, papers, developments in same topic?

P.S. I do not know which tags are appropriate. I appreciate any help with correcting tags. I also posted this in PhysicsSE but it seems to be less active than MathSE.

Added : To see the original paper see Arxiv.

Could you say something about the relation? The paper by Susskind? – Hui Yu Jan 2 '13 at 11:39
It's Titled Eternal Symmetree. – user45099 Jan 2 '13 at 11:41
citation with link to the original preprint? – MathematicalPhysicist Jan 2 '13 at 11:41
And I am not an expert and was interested in P-adic numbers and discovered this. I just wish to explore it more. – user45099 Jan 2 '13 at 11:46
If you're interested in p-adic numbers and you have a basic undergraduate level in mathematics (basic calculus, linear algebra, abstrac algebra and topology), I wholeheartedly recommend the book "p-adic Numbers" , by Fernando Q. Gouvea. It's really nice and gentle. – DonAntonio Jan 2 '13 at 12:46

This isn't exactly what you wanted, but this is an article about the use of p-adic numbers in physics (including cosmology):
