### A specific Diophantine equation related to the congruent number question

Let $n$ be an odd square free natural number. J.B. Tunnel in his 1983 paper, showed that a number $n$ is congruent, if and only if the number of triples of integers satisfying $2x^2+y^2+8z^2=n$ is ...

### Closed immersion hitting all the $\mathbb{Q}$-points

Let $i:X\to Y$ be a closed immersion of smooth projective varieties over $\mathbb{Q}$. Assume that $Y(\mathbb{Q})$ is infinite and $X(\mathbb{Q})\to Y(\mathbb{Q})$ is surjective. Also assume that $X$ ...

### On four non-cocyclic integral points on ellipse

Let $(x_i,y_i)\in\mathbb Z^2$ at $i\in\{1,2,3,4\}$ be four (not five and I assume an unique curve exists because of Diophantine constraints and not geometric constraints) non-cocyclic integral points ...

### Finiteness of rational points on certain open subset of surfaces of general type

Let $X$ be a smooth surface of general type defined over a number field $k$. The Bombieri-Lang conjecture asserts that there is a proper Zariski-closed set $Z$ in $X$ such that for any finite ...

### Sizes and shapes of Dedekind cuts

My geometric intuition has failed to tell me that there are different sizes and shapes of Dedekind cuts. I realized it in the course of writing this answer only by doing algebra. If we define a ...

### Higher Fano varieties and Tsen's theorem

The rational connectivity of (complex) Fano manifolds ($c_1(T_X) > 0$) is one of the major, and surely most memorable achievements of Mori's bend-and-break method. To this day, despite intensive ...

### How important is Weil's decomposition theorem today?

Andre Weil's Apprenticeship of a Mathematician (p. 46) tells how he as a student realized that all of Fermat's uses of descent are unified in one principle: "If $P(x,y)$ and $Q(x,y)$ are homogeneous ...

### Schoenberg's rational polygon problem

"A polygon is said to be rational if all its sides and diagonals are rational, and I. J. Schoenberg has posed the difficult question, ‘Can any given polygon be approximated as closely as we like by a ...

### Diophantine approximation in $\mathbb{G}_m^r$ with approximants restricted to a finiteley generated subgroup

Faltings, in the same paper (Diophantine approximation on abelian varieties, Ann. Math. 1991) in which he proved his famous big theorem,'' proved also that at any place $v$ of a number field $K$ and ...

The classical de Franchis theorem, as generalized by S. Kobayashi and T. Ochiai ("Meromorphic mappings onto compact complex spaces of general type," Inventiones, 1975), states that if $X$ is a complex ...
