Coniques projectives, affines et métriques : Cours et exercices

Les coniques ont, depuis toujours, fasciné les amateurs de technological know-how, au sens le plus huge. Il faut dire qu’elles sont présentes dans les events les plus diverses. Mais cette fascination s’exerce encore aujourd’hui sur les mathématiciens, et même sur les géomètres les plus chevronnés. Une des raisons en est sans doute l’extraordinaire variété des approches possibles pour appréhender ces objets.

Note that the determinant of L(v) is ||v||. Lemma 4. For every d > 2 and every e > 0 there exists c(e) > 0 such that for large enough T, the number o f v ^ F * 1 with \\v\\ < Td~~l and n(v] > c(e}T is at most We will use {x} to denote the rational part of x G R: {x} = x — [x\.

However, they will also point out that it has a refinement in an unexpected direction. All our examples consist of 6 lines t\ , t^ , • • • , t§ in P3 (though described in R3 C P3), and 6 "transversals" which we may denote ^,^2", • • • ,^j- according to the rule: Example 1. Let ^1,^2,^3 be three lines in a plane P meeting at different points pij = til\lj. Consider three non colinear points in P, called P4,ps,p6) and any point p not in the plane P. Define ii — p V Pi for i = 4,5,6. The 5 to 5 transversals are then uniquely determined by t^ = p V pjk for (z, j, k} = {1,2,3}, and if- — PJ V pk for (z, j, k} = {4,5,6}.

If p > 3^(v), and x G aff L(v), then the polytope K = conv{(a; + pB) fl L(v}} contains a lattice point in its relative interior. Proof. By the definition of//, y-\- /J-(v)B contains a lattice point for every y € aff L(v). In particular, there is a z 6 L(v} fl (x + n(v}B}. So it suffices to show that x -f n(v}B C K since then z is in the relative inte rior of K . Assume a point from the boundary of x + n(v}B is not contained in A'. Then a (d — 2)-dimesional hyperplane separates it from A'. This hyperplane splits x + pB into two parts.
