Integral points of fixed degree and bounded height

By Northcott's Theorem there are only finitely many algebraic points in affine $n$-space of fixed degree over a given number field and of height at most $X$. For large $X$ the asymptotics of these

On the Absolute Trace of Polynomials Having All Zeros in a Sector

The greatest lower bound υ(θ) of the absolute trace of α, for θ belonging to seven subintervals of [0, 90°), is computed using the method of explicit auxiliary functions.

A proof of the Conjecture of Lehmer and of the Conjecture of Schinzel-Zassenhaus

The conjecture of Lehmer is proved to be true. The proof mainly relies upon: (i) the properties of the Parry Upper functions f α (z) associated with the dynamical zeta functions ζ α (z) of the

Diagonal cubic forms and the large sieve

Let F (x) be a diagonal integer-coefficient cubic form in m ∈ {4, 5, 6} variables. Excluding rational lines if m = 4, we bound the number of integral solutions x ∈ [−X,X] to F (x) = 0 by OF, (X

Isolating special solutions in the delta method: The case of a diagonal cubic equation in evenly many variables over $\mathbb{Q}$

Let F ∈ Z[x] be a diagonal cubic form in m ∈ {4, 6} variables. In the “standard cubic delta method” of Duke–Friedlander–Iwaniec and Heath-Brown, we extract a weighted count of certain special

Convergence to the Mahler measure and the distribution of periodic points for algebraic Noetherian $\mathbb{Z}^d$-actions

For every $P \in \mathbb{Z}[x_1^{\pm 1}, \ldots, x_d^{\pm 1}] \setminus \{0\}$, and every $\varepsilon > 0$, we prove that there are a computable function $M = M(d,\varepsilon,\deg{P},h(P)) < \infty$



A Lower Bound for the Height in Abelian Extensions

Abstract We produce an absolute lower bound for the height of the algebraic numbers (different from zero and from the roots of unity) lying in an abelian extension of the rationals. The proof rests

Number Theory and Polynomials: The Mahler measure of algebraic numbers: a survey

A survey of results for Mahler measure of algebraic numbers, and one-variable polynomials with integer coefficients is presented. Related results on the maximum modulus of the conjugates (`house') of

Minorations des hauteurs normalisées des sous-variétés des tores

We extend to the case of torii the study of small points on subvarieties of abelian varieties initiated in a previous work, and which gave an effective proof of the generalized Bogomolov

Points de hauteur bornée et géométrie des variétés

Résumé. — Si V est une variété algébrique ayant une infinité de points rationnels sur un corps de nombres, il est naturel de munir V d’une hauteur et d’étudier de manière asymptotique les points
