Title:Manin's Conjecture for a Class of Singular Hypersurfaces
Keynote Speaker:Wu Jie
Abstract: Let $n$ be a positive multiple of $4$ or $n=2$. In this talk, we shall show how to establish an asymptotic formula for the number of rational points of bounded height on singular cubic hypersurfaces $S_n$ defined by $$x^3=(y_1^2 + \cdots + y_n^2)z, $$ by analytic method.
This result is new in two aspects: first, it can be viewed as a modest start on the study of density of rational points on those singular cubic hypersurfaces which are not covered by the classical theorems of Davenport or Heath-Brown; second, it proves Manin's conjecture for singular cubic hypersurfaces $S_n$ defined above.
