An elliptic analogue of the Franklin-Schneider theorem

A. Bijlsma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Let p be a Weierstrass elliptic function with algebraic invariants g2 and g3. Let a and b be complex numbers such that a and b are not among the poles of p. A lower bound is given for the simultaneous approximation of p(a), b and p(ab) by algebraic numbers, expressed in their heights and degrees. By a counterexample it is shown that a certain hypothesis on the numbers beta approximating b is necessary.
