Diophantine subsets of function fields of curves

János Kollár

Vol. 2 (2008), No. 3, 299–311
Abstract

We consider diophantine subsets of function fields of curves and show, roughly speaking, that they are either very small or very large. In particular, this implies that the ring of polynomials k[t] is not a diophantine subset of the field of rational functions k(t) for many fields k.
