ABSTRACT

The theory of heights for rational points on arithmetic elliptic curves is becoming well known. An important fact in the basic theory is the relationship between the na\" \i ve and the canonical height of a rational point; in fact they differ by a uniformly bounded amount. In this note, we provide a generalisation of this fact from the point of view of heights of polynomials, rather than heights of points. We extend this concept to polynomials in several variables.

MEMBERSHIP

Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
