# Bounding heights uniformly in families of hyperbolic varieties

@article{Ascher2016BoundingHU, title={Bounding heights uniformly in families of hyperbolic varieties}, author={Kenneth Ascher and Ariyan Javanpeykar}, journal={arXiv: Algebraic Geometry}, year={2016} }

We show that, assuming Vojta's height conjecture, the height of a rational point on an algebraically hyperbolic variety can be bounded "uniformly" in families. This generalizes a result of Su-Ion Ih for curves of genus at least two to higher-dimensional varieties. As an application, we show that, assuming Vojta's height conjecture, the height of a rational point on a curve of general type is uniformly bounded. Finally, we prove a similar result for smooth hyperbolic surfaces with $c_1^2 > c_2$.
