Quantitative Arithmetic of Projective Varieties (Progress in Mathematics)



This monograph is concerned with counting rational points of bounded height on projective algebraic varieties. This is a relatively young topic, whose exploration has already uncovered a rich seam of mathematics situated at the interface of analytic number theory and Diophantine geometry. The goal of the book is to give a systematic account of the field with an emphasis on the role played by analytic number theory in its development. Among the themes discussed in detail are * the Manin conjecture for del Pezzo surfaces; * Heath-Brown's dimension growth conjecture; and * the Hardy-Littlewood circle method. Readers of this monograph will be rapidly brought into contact with a spectrum of problems and conjectures that are central to this fertile subject area.
