Some arithmetic dynamics of diagonally split polynomial maps. (English) Zbl 1391.37073
Summary: Let \(n\geq 2\), and let \(f\) be a polynomial of degree at least 2 with coefficients in a number field or a characteristic 0 function field \(K\). We present two arithmetic applications of a recent theorem of Medvedev-Scanlon to the dynamics of the map \((f,\ldots,f):(\mathbb P^1_K)^n\to (\mathbb P^1_K)^n\), namely the dynamical analogs of the Hasse principle and the Bombieri-Masser-Zannier height bound theorem. In particular, we prove that the Hasse principle holds when we intersect an orbit and a preperiodic subvariety, and that points in the intersection of a curve with the union of all periodic hypersurfaces have bounded heights unless that curve is vertical or contained in a periodic hypersurface.
