The density of rational points on non-singular hypersurfaces, II

By D. R. Heath-Brown and T. D. Browning


For any integers $d,n \geq 2$, let $X \subset \mathbb{P}^{n}$ be a non-singular hypersurface of degree $d$ that is defined over $\mathbb{Q}$. The main result in this paper is a proof that the number $N_X(B)$ of $\mathbb{Q}$-rational points on $X$ which have height at most $B$ satisfies $ N_X(B)=O_{d,\varepsilon,n}(B^{n-1+\varepsilon}), $ for any $\varepsilon>0$. The implied constant in this estimate depends at most upon $d, \varepsilon$ and $n$
