On zeros of multilinear polynomials (Max Forst, CGU)
February 21 @ 12:15 pm - 1:10 pm
Consider rational polynomials in multiple variables that are linear with respect to some of the variables. In this talk we discuss the problem of finding a zero of such polynomials that are bounded with respect to a height function. For a system of such polynomials satisfying certain technical conditions we prove the existence of a bounded height simultaneous zero. For a single such polynomial we prove the existence of a zero of bounded height lying outside of a prescribed algebraic set. Based on joint work with Lenny Fukshansky.
