A publication of Hindustan Book Agency

This book is intended to be an introduction to Diophantine
geometry. The central theme is the investigation of the distribution
of integral points on algebraic varieties.

The text rapidly introduces problems in Diophantine geometry,
especially those involving integral points, assuming a geometrical
perspective. It presents recent results not available in textbooks and
also new viewpoints on classical material.

In some instances, proofs have been replaced by a detailed analysis
of particular cases. Readers are referred to the quoted papers for complete
proofs.

Siegel's finiteness theorem for integral points on curves plays a
central role. The book ends with the analysis of integral points on
surfaces.
