Algebra & Combinatorics Seminar

Title: On the simultaneous approximation of algebraic numbers
Speaker: Ravindranath Thangadurai (Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Prayagraj)
Date: 07 December 2020
Time: 3 pm
Venue: Microsoft Teams (online)

In 2004, Corvaja and Zannier proved an extension of Roth’s theorem on rational approximation of algebraic numbers. With a collaboration of Dr. Veekesh Kumar, we proved a simultaneous version of Corvaja and Zannier’s result. These results are applications of a strong form of the Subspace Theorem. In this talk, we shall discuss the motivation of Corvaja and Zannier’s result and our generalization.
