A Surface Coming from an Arithmetic Question

Homero Gallegos-Ruiz

CONACyT - Universidad Autonoma de Zacatecas, Mexico   -

We study a surface in $\mathbb{P}^6$, which is a complete intersection of four quadrics coming from the rational distance problem: given a unit square on the plane, is there a point on the plane whose distances to the four points are all rational?

Joint work with Martha Bernal (CONACyT - Universidad Autonoma de Zacatecas, Mexico.).
