Topological p-adic vector spaces are totally disconnected?

Let $$V$$ be a $$\mathbb{Q}_p$$-vector space endowed with a Hausdorff topology such that addition and scalar multiplication are continuous. Is $$V$$ necessarily totally disconnected?

I am in particular interested to the case of normed (or even Banach) $$\mathbb{Q}_p$$-vector spaces, with the topology induced by the norm. I know that ultrametric spaces are automatically totally disconnected but I'm not sure any normed vector space over $$\mathbb{Q}_p$$ is automatically ultrametric...

• In this generality, no. If you take V with the indiscrete topology, then addition and scalar multiplication are continuous for trivial reasons but V is connected, also for trivial reasons. – Asvin Jun 24 at 14:35
• @HagenvonEitzen isn't a zero-dimensional v.s. trivial, thus totally disconnected for any topology? – frafour Jun 24 at 15:10
• Not without further restrictions. $\mathbb C_p \simeq \mathbb C$ as fields (with the axiom of choice). Endow the $\mathbb Q_p$- vector space $\mathbb C_p$ with the usual archimedean topology of $\mathbb C$, which is a field topology, i.e. multiplication and addition are continuous. This topology is Hausdorff but not totally disconnected. – Torsten Schoeneberg Jun 24 at 15:22
• @TorstenSchoeneberg Are you sure the scalar multiplication $\mathbb{Q}_p\times\mathbb{C}\to\mathbb{C}$ is continuous? – user10354138 Jun 24 at 15:41
• @user10354138: Very good point. If one endows $\mathbb{Q}_p$ with the subspace topology, it is, but I see the OP probably asks for continuity of scalar multiplication with the $p$-adic topology on scalars; then this does not work. – Torsten Schoeneberg Jun 24 at 16:53
