Title: A Schmidt-Nochka Theorem for closed subschemes

Speaker: Aaron Levin, Michigan State University

Abstract: Schmidt's Subspace Theorem and Cartan's Second Main Theorem occupy central roles in Diophantine approximation and Nevanlinna theory, respectively. Proving a conjecture of Cartan, Nochka extended the Second Main Theorem to hyperplanes in so-called m-subgeneral position, and Ru and Wong proved an analogous extension of Schmidt's theorem. I will discuss recent work with Gordon Heier proving an inequality which melds inequalities of Schmidt and Nochka in the general setting of closed subschemes, and in particular gives a partial solution to generalizing the results of Nochka and Ru-Wong to hypersurfaces in projective space.
