In this article we establish two new results on quantitative Diophantine approximation for one-parameter families of diagonal ternary indefinite forms. In the first result, we consider quadratic forms taking values at prime points. In the second, we examine inhomogeneous forms of arbitrary degree taking values at integer points. 


Values of Random Polynomials at Integer Points
Using classical results of Rogers bounding the $L^2$-norm of Siegel transforms, we give bounds on the heights of approximate integral solutions of quadratic equations and error terms in the
A quantitative Oppenheim theorem for generic diagonal quadratic forms
We establish a quantitative version of Oppenheim’s conjecture for one-parameter families of ternary indefinite quadratic forms using an analytic number-theory approach. The statements come with power
Three-dimensional exponential sums with monomials
Abstract Fouvry and Iwaniec's theorem concerning three-dimensional exponential sums with monomials relies on a spacing lemma whose optimal form is yet unproved. We bypass their spacing lemma via a
A Quantitative Oppenheim Theorem for generic ternary quadratic forms
We prove a quantitative version of Oppenheim's conjecture for generic ternary indefinite quadratic forms. Our results are inspired by and analogous to recent results for diagonal quadratic forms due
Abstract We show that whenever δ > 0 and constants λi satisfy some necessary conditions, there are infinitely many prime triples p1, p2, p3 satisfying the inequality |λ0 + λ1p1 + λ2p2 + λ3p3| < (max
Effective estimates on indefinite ternary forms
We give an effective proof of a theorem of Dani and Margulis regarding values of indefinite ternary quadratic forms at primitive integer vectors. The proof uses an effective density-type result for
Values of inhomogeneous forms at S‐integral points
We prove effective versions of Oppenheim's conjecture for generic inhomogeneous forms in the S‐arithmetic setting. We prove an effective result for fixed rational shifts and generic forms and we also
Effective density for inhomogeneous quadratic forms II: fixed forms and generic shifts
We establish effective versions of Oppenheim's conjecture for generic inhomogeneous quadratic forms. We prove such results for fixed quadratic forms and generic shifts. Our results complement our
Sums of arithmetic functions over values of binary forms
Given a suitable arithmetic function h, we investigate the average order of h as it ranges over the values taken by an integral binary form F. A general upper bound is obtained for this quantity, in
Quantitative Version of the Oppenheim Conjecture for Inhomogeneous Quadratic Forms
A quantitative version of the Oppenheim conjecture for inhomogeneous quadratic forms is proved. We also give an application to eigenvalue spacing on flat 2-tori with Aharonov-Bohm flux.
