Affine congruences and rational points on a certain cubic surface

Pierre Le Boudec

Vol. 8 (2014), No. 5, 1259–1296
Abstract

We establish estimates for the number of solutions of certain affine congruences. These estimates are then used to prove Manin’s conjecture for a cubic surface split over whose singularity type is D4. This improves on a result of Browning and answers a problem posed by Tschinkel.

Keywords
