The Hasse principle for diagonal forms restricted to lower-degree hypersurfaces

Julia Brandes and Scott T. Parsell

Vol. 15 (2021), No. 9, 2289–2314

We establish the analytic Hasse principle for Diophantine systems consisting of one diagonal form of degree k and one general form of degree d, where d is smaller than k. By employing a hybrid method that combines ideas from the study of general forms with techniques adapted to the diagonal case, we are able to obtain bounds that grow exponentially in d but only quadratically in k, reflecting the growth rates typically obtained for both problems separately. We also discuss some of the most interesting generalisations of our approach.
