Description - Unit Equations in Diophantine Number Theory by Jan-Hendrik Evertse
Diophantine number theory is an active area that has seen tremendous growth over the past century, and in this theory unit equations play a central role. This comprehensive treatment is the first volume devoted to these equations. The authors gather together all the most important results and look at many different aspects, including effective results on unit equations over number fields, estimates on the number of solutions, analogues for function fields and effective results for unit equations over finitely generated domains. They also present a variety of applications. Introductory chapters provide the necessary background in algebraic number theory and function field theory, as well as an account of the required tools from Diophantine approximation and transcendence theory. This makes the book suitable for young researchers as well as experts who are looking for an up-to-date overview of the field.

Author Biography - Jan-Hendrik Evertse
Jan-Hendrik Evertse is Assistant Professor in the Mathematical Institute at Leiden University. His research concentrates on Diophantine approximation and applications to Diophantine problems. In this area he has obtained some influential results, in particular on estimates for the numbers of solutions of Diophantine equations and inequalities. He has written more than 75 research papers and co-authored one book with Bas Edixhoven entitled Diophantine Approximation and Abelian Varieties (2003). Kalman Gyory is Professor Emeritus at the University of Debrecen, a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and a well-known researcher in Diophantine number theory. Over his career he has obtained several significant and pioneering results, among others on unit equations, decomposable form equations, and their various applications. His results have been published in one book and 160 research papers. Gyory is also the founder and leader of the Number Theory Research Group in Debrecen, which consists of his former students and their descendants.
