Baby version of the asymptotic volume estimate
Abstract: I’ll show how the Vandermonde determinant identity allows us to
estimate the volume of certain spaces of polynomials in one variable
(or rather, of homogeneous polynomials in two variables), as the degree
goes to infinity.
I’ll explain what this is good for in the context of globally valued
fields, and, given time constraints, may give some indications on the
approach for the “real inequality” in higher projective dimension.
