We prove some new degeneracy results for integral points and entire curves on surfaces; in particular, we provide the first example, to our knowledge, of a simply connected smooth variety whose sets of integral points are never Zariski-dense (and no entire curve has Zariski-dense image). Some of our results are connected with divisibility problems, i.e. the problem of describing the integral points in the plane where the values of some given polynomials in two variables divide the values of… Expand
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 areExpand

Diophantine Geometry aims to describe the sets of rational and/or integral points on a variety. More precisely one would like geometric conditions on a variety X that determine the distribution ofExpand
The Hilbert Property for integral points of affine smooth cubic surfaces
In this paper we prove that the set of $S$-integral points of the smooth cubic surfaces in $\mathbb{A}^3$ over a number field $k$ is not thin, for suitable $k$ and $S$. As a corollary, we obtainExpand
Hyperbolicity of varieties of log general type: arithmetic and geometry
These notes provide an overview of various notions of hyperbolicity for varieties of log general type from the viewpoint of both arithmetic and birational geometry. The main results are based on ourExpand
On the Hilbert property and the fundamental group of algebraic varieties
In this paper we link the so-called Hilbert property (HP) for an algebraic variety (over a number field) with its fundamental group, in a perspective which appears new. (The notion of HP comes fromExpand
Applications of Diophantine Approximation to Integral Points and Transcendence
Diophantine approximation may be roughly described as the branch of number theory concerned with approximations by rational numbers; or rather, this constituted the original motivation. That suchExpand
Invitation to Integral and Rational points on curves and surfaces
This survey article is an introduction to Diophantine Geometry at a basic undergraduate level. It focuses on Diophantine Equations and the qualitative description of their solutions rather thanExpand
Degeneracy and hidden symmetry -- an asymmetric quantum Rabi model with an integer bias
The hidden symmetry of the asymmetric quantum Rabi model (AQRM) with a half-integral bias (ibQRM`) was uncovered in recent studies by the explicit construction of operators J` commuting with theExpand
Nonspecial varieties and generalised Lang–Vojta conjectures
Abstract We construct a family of fibred threefolds $X_m \to (S , \Delta )$ such that $X_m$ has no étale cover that dominates a variety of general type but it dominates the orbifold $(S,\Delta )$ ofExpand

Algebraic surfaces holomorphically dominable by ℂ2
Using the Kodaira dimension and the fundamental group of X, we succeed in classifying algebraic surfaces which are dominable by C^2 except for certain cases in which X is an algebraic surface ofExpand
Generalizations of Siegel's and Picard's theorems

Vector fields on the total space of hypersurfaces in the projective space and hyperbolicity
The results we obtain in this article concern the hyperbolicity of very generic hypersurfaces in the 3-dimensional projective space: we show that the Kobayashi conjecture is true in this setting, asExpand
One-Parameter Families of Unit Equations
We study one-parameter families of S-unit equations of the form f(t)u+g(t)v=h(t), where f, g, and h are univariate polynomials over a number field, t is an S-integer, and u and v are S-units. ForExpand
