Some Problems of Unlikely Intersections in Arithmetic and Geometry by U Zannier( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work considers the so-called 'unlikely' intersections, a topic that embraces well-known issues, such as Lang's and Manin-Mumford's, concerning torsion points in subvarieties of tori or abelian varieties. More generally, the text considers algebraic subgroups that meet a given subvariety in a set of 'unlikely' dimension
Elliptic functions and transcendence by David William Masser( Book )

14 editions published in 1975 in English and German and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diophantine approximation : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. summer school held in Cetraro, Italy, June 28-July 6, 2000 by David William Masser( Book )

20 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The C.I.M.E. session in Diophantine Approximation, held in Cetraro (Italy) June 28 - July 6, 2000 focused on height theory, linear independence and transcendence in group varieties, Baker's method, approximations to algebraic numbers and applications to polynomial-exponential diophantine equations and to diophantine theory of linear recurrences. Very fine lectures by D. Masser, Y. Nesterenko, H.-P. Schlickewei, W.M. Schmidt and M. Waldschmidt have resulted giving a good overview of these topics, and describing central results, both classical and recent, emphasizing the new methods and ideas of the proofs rather than the details. They are addressed to a wide audience and do not require any prior specific knowledge
Transcendence theory, advances and applications : proceedings of a conference held in Cambridge in 1976 by Conference Held at the University of Cambridge( Book )

12 editions published between 1977 and 1991 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auxiliary polynomials in number theory by David William Masser( )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unified account of various aspects of a powerful classical method, easy to understand in its simplest forms, is illustrated by applications in several areas of number theory. As well as including diophantine approximation and transcendence, which were mainly responsible for its invention, the author places the method in a broader context by exploring its application in other areas, such as exponential sums and counting problems in both finite fields and the field of rationals. Throughout the book, the method is explained in a 'molecular' fashion, where key ideas are introduced independently. Each application is the most elementary significant example of its kind and appears with detailed references to subsequent developments, making it accessible to advanced undergraduates as well as postgraduate students in number theory or related areas. It provides over 700 exercises both guiding and challenging, while the broad array of applications should interest professionals in fields from number theory to algebraic geometry
Some problems of unlikely intersections in arithmetic and geometry by U Zannier( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book considers the so-called Unlikely Intersections, a topic that embraces well-known issues, such as Lang's and Manin-Mumford's, concerning torsion points in subvarieties of tori or abelian varieties. More generally, the book considers algebraic subgroups that meet a given subvariety in a set of unlikely dimension. The book is an expansion of the Hermann Weyl Lectures delivered by Umberto Zannier at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in May 2010. The book consists of four chapters and seven brief appendixes, the last six by David Masser. The first chapter considers multiplicative algebraic groups, presenting proofs of several developments, ranging from the origins to recent results, and discussing many applications and relations with other contexts. The second chapter considers an analogue in arithmetic and several applications of this. The third chapter introduces a new method for approaching some of these questions, and presents a detailed application of this (by Masser and the author) to a relative case of the Manin-Mumford issue. The fourth chapter focuses on the André-Oort conjecture (outlining work by Pila)
