Obstructions to the Hasse principle in thin families

Lead Research Organisation: University of Bristol
Department Name: Mathematics


Given a family of algebraic varieties over a number field, the goal of this project is to
understand the distribution of elements in the family which give rise to counterexamples
to the Hasse principle. One of the key goals is to find a family which gives
a positive proportion of counter-examples.
