Strong approximation over function fields. (English) Zbl 1428.14035
Let $$C$$ be a smooth irreducible projective curve over $$\mathbb{C}$$ with function field $$F=\mathbb{C}(C)$$. For each place $$v$$ of $$F$$ , let $$F_v$$ be the completion of $$F$$ at $$v$$. For a nonempty finite set $$S$$ of places of $$F$$ we denote with $$o_{F,S}$$ the ring of $$S$$-integers. Let $$\mathbb{A}_{F,S}:=\prod^\prime_{v \in F \setminus S} F_v$$ be the ring of adèles over all places outside $$S$$. Here the product considered is restricted, i.e., all but a finite number of factors are in $$o_{F,v}$$.
The ring $$\mathbb{A}_{F,S}$$ can be equipped with two natural topologies: the first one is the product topology, while the second one is the adelic topology. We consider $$U$$ to be a geometrically integral algebraic variety over $$F$$. Let $$U(F)$$ be the set of $$F$$-rational points, and $$U(\mathbb{A}_{F,S})$$ be the restricted product $$\prod^{\prime}_{v \not\in S} U(F_v)$$. The set of adelic points $$U(\mathbb{A}_{F,S})$$ admits the product topology and the adelic topology as locally inherited from that of adelic affine spaces.
In this context, a strong approximation (respectively, a weak approximation) holds for $$U$$ if for any non-empty $$S$$ the inclusion $$U(F)\subset U(\mathbb{A}_{F,S})$$ is dense in the adelic topology (respectively, in the product topology).
The Hasse’s principle holds for the integral points of $$U$$ if for any non-trivial $$S$$ and any integral model of $$U$$ over $$o_{F,S}$$, say $$\mathcal{U}$$, $$\prod_{v \not\in S} \mathcal{U}(o_{F,v})$$ non-empty implies $$\mathcal{U}(o_{F,S})$$ non-empty.
The main aim of this paper paper is to try to build a theory of integral points on open varieties over $$F$$. Being expected that weak approximation holds for rationally connected projective varieties, the natural candidates to satisfy strong approximation are log rationally connected varieties, namely varieties on which a general pair of points can be connected by an $$\mathbb{A}_{1}$$-curve.
The main proposed theorem proves that strong approximation holds for smooth, low-degree affine complete intersections and that Hasse’s principle holds for integral points of the interior of any smooth complete intersection pair of low degree.
