  title={Diophantine Approximation and Nevanlinna Theory},
  author={Paul Vojta},
Beginning with the work of Osgood [65], it has been known that the branch of complex analysis known as Nevanlinna theory (also called value distribution theory) has many similarities with Roth’s theorem on diophantine approximation. 
Multiplier ideal sheaves, Nevanlinna theory, and Diophantine approximation
This paper states a conjecture for Nevanlinna theory or diophantine approximation, with a sheaf of ideals in place of the normal crossings divisor. This is done by using a correction term involving a
Greatest common divisors of analytic functions and Nevanlinna theory on algebraic tori
Abstract We study upper bounds for the counting function of common zeros of two meromorphic functions in various contexts. The proofs and results are inspired by recent work involving greatest common
Birational Nevanlinna constants, beta constants, and diophantine approximation to closed subschemes
In an earlier paper (joint with Min Ru), we proved a result on diophantine approximation to Cartier divisors, extending a 2011 result of P. Autissier. This was recently extended to certain closed
On the conjectures of Vojta and Campana over function fields with explicit exceptional sets
We prove new cases of Vojta’s conjectures for surfaces in the context of function fields, with truncation equal to one and providing an effective explicit description of the exceptional set. We also

We show that Lang's conjecture on error terms in Diophantine approximation implies Honda's conjecture on ranks of elliptic curves over number fields. We also show that even a very weak version of
Divisibility of polynomials and degeneracy of integral points
We prove several statements about arithmetic hyperbolicity of certain blow-up varieties. As a corollary we obtain multiple examples of simply connected quasi-projective varieties that are
