In this paper we consider the probabilistic theory of Diophantine approximation in projective space over a completion of Q. Using the projective metric studied by Bombieri, van der Poorten, and Vaaler we prove the analogue of Khintchine's Theorem in projective space. For finite places and in higher dimension, we are able to completely remove the condition of monotonicity and establish the analogue of the Duffin-Schaeffer conjecture. 

Badly approximable points for diagonal approximation in solenoids

In this paper we investigate the problem of how well points in finite dimensional p-adic solenoids can be approximated by rationals. The setting we work in was previously studied by Palmer, who

A note on badly approximabe sets in projective space

Recently, Ghosh and Haynes (J Reine Angew Math 712:39–50, 2016) proved a Khintchine-type result for the problem of Diophantine approximation in certain projective spaces. In this note we complement

Topics in homogeneous dynamics and number theory

This is a survey article describing some recent results at the interface of homogeneous dynamics and Diophantine approximation.

A class of maximally singular sets for rational approximation

We say that a subset of [Formula: see text] is maximally singular if its contains points with [Formula: see text]-linearly independent homogenous coordinates whose uniform exponent of simultaneous




In this paper we consider the uniform distribution of points in compact metric spaces. We assume that there exists a probability measure on the Borel subsets of the space which is invariant under a

The metric theory of p-adic approximation

Metric Diophantine approximation in its classical form is the study of how well almost all real numbers can be approximated by rationals. There is a long history of results which give partial answers

A mass transference principle and the Duffin-Schaeffer conjecture for Hausdorff measures

A Hausdorff measure version of the Duffin-Schaeffer conjecture in metric number theory is introduced and discussed. The general conjecture is established modulo the original conjecture. The key

Diophantine approximation and a lower bound for Hausdorff dimension

Sets of the general form where U is a subset of ℛ k and is a family of subsets of U indexed by a set J , are common in the theory of Diophantine approximation [4, 7, 18, 19]. They are also closely

The Duffin–Schaeffer Conjecture with extra divergence

Given a nonnegative function $${\psi\mathbb{N} \to \mathbb{R}}$$, let W(ψ) denote the set of real numbers x such that |nx − a| < ψ(n) for infinitely many reduced rationals a/n (n > 0). A consequence
