Roth's Theorem on Approximation of Algebraic Number by Rationals and Generalizations
Abstract of Talk
One the fundamental results in Diophantine Approximation is the Thue-Siegel-Roth Theorem, also known as Roth's Theorem. In this talk, I will give a survey of results on Diophantine Approximation of Algebraic Number by Rationals starting from Liouville. I will also present a proof of Roth's Theorem and talk about some generalizations and applications.
