In this paper, we study the properties of weak approximation with BrauerManin obstruction and the Hasse principle with Brauer-Manin obstruction for surfaces with respect to field extensions of number fields. We assume a conjecture of M. Stoll. For any nontrivial extension of number fields L/K, we construct two kinds of smooth, projective, and geometrically connected surfaces defined over K. For the surface of the first kind, it has a K-rational point, and satisfies weak approximation with… 


Finite descent obstructions and rational points on curves
Let k be a number field and X a smooth projective k-variety. In this paper, we study the information obtainable from descent via torsors under finite k-group schemes on the location of the k-rational
Singular curves and the etale Brauer-Manin obstruction for surfaces
We construct a smooth and projective surface over an arbitrary number field that is a counterexample to the Hasse principle but has the infinite etale Brauer-Manin set. We also construct a surface
Non-invariance of weak approximation properties under extension of the ground field
For rational points on algebraic varieties defined over a number field $K$, we study the behavior of the property of weak approximation with Brauer-Manin obstruction under extension of the ground
Insufficiency of the Brauer-Manin obstruction applied to étale covers
Let k be any global field of characteristic not 2. We construct a k-variety X such that X(k) is empty, but for which the emptiness cannot be explained by the Brauer-Manin obstruction or even by the
