MPIM Lecture Hall Consider a homogeneous polynomial over some field

*k*such that the number of variables is “much larger” than the degree. Does it necessarily have a nontrivial zero in*k*? Fields for which the answer to this question is affirmative are called*C*_{i}fields. Starting with this classical notion, we will overview some important aspects of the study of rational points on algebraic varieties.© MPI f. Mathematik, Bonn | Impressum & Datenschutz |
