** Title: **On p-adic differential equations with separation of variables.

** Citation: **
The computation of a power series solution of a given ordinary
differential equation is a basic problem in computer algebra. For a
first-order ordinary differential equation with separation of
variables and with p-adic coefficients, the authors of this paper give
an optimal bound on the stability of the Newton iteration. The result
applies to algorithms for manipulating algebraic numbers over finite
fields, for computing isogenies between elliptic curves, and for
deterministically finding roots of polynomials in finite fields.
