Quantitative results on Diophantine equations in many variables
We consider a system of integer polynomials of the same degree with non-singular local zeros and in many variables. Generalising the work of Birch (1962) we find a quantitative asymptotic formula (in terms of the maximum of the absolute value of the coefficients of these polynomials) for the number of integer zeros of this system within a growing box. Using a quantitative version of the Nullstellensatz, we obtain a quantitative strong approximation result, i.e. an upper bound on the smallest non-trivial integer zero provided the system of polynomials is non-singular.
