# Local Weierstrass preparation

I could not find a reference of the local version of Weierstrass preparation theorem It is used for example in Denef & van den Dries "$p$-adic and real subanalytic sets". Can you help, thank you

See '$p$-adic numbers, $p$-adic analysis, and zeta-functions' by Koblitz. Chapter IV sections 3 and 4 have a good exposition on newton polygons and the Weierstrass preparation theorem.

What I need more precisely is the statment and proof of LOCAL weierstrass preparation. I did not find that in Koblitz's book. –  user17090 Oct 10 '11 at 16:46

A good elementary proof of the Weierstrass preparation theorem can be found in the book of Jun-ichi Igusa
