On a conjecture of Kato and Kuzumaki

Diego Izquierdo

Vol. 12 (2018), No. 2, 429–454

In 1986, Kato and Kuzumaki stated several conjectures in order to give a diophantine characterization of cohomological dimension of fields in terms of projective hypersurfaces of small degree and Milnor K-theory. We establish these conjectures for finite extensions of (x1,,xn) and (x1,,xn)((t)), and we prove new local-global principles over number fields and global fields of positive characteristic in the context of Kato and Kuzumaki’s conjectures.
