The Generalized Baker–Schmidt Problem on Hypersurfaces Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract The generalized Baker–Schmidt problem (1970) concerns the $f$-dimensional Hausdorff measure of the set of $\psi $-approximable points on a nondegenerate manifold. There are two variants of this problem concerning simultaneous and dual approximation. Beresnevich–Dickinson–Velani (in 2006, for the homogeneous setting) and Badziahin–Beresnevich–Velani (in 2013, for the inhomogeneous setting) proved the divergence part of this problem for dual approximation on arbitrary nondegenerate manifolds. The corresponding convergence counterpart represents a major challenging open question and the progress thus far has only been attained over planar curves. In this paper, we settle this problem for hypersurfaces in a more general setting, that is, for inhomogeneous approximations and with a non-monotonic multivariable approximating function.
