Let \(V\) be a del Pezzo surface of degree \(4\) defined over an algebraic number field \(k\). Suppose that \(V(k)\) is not empty. Let \({\mathcal A}\) be the subset of the adelic space \(V({\mathbb A})\) consisting of the points \(\prod P_v\) such that \[ \sum\text{inv}_v(A(P_v))=0\quad\text{in}\;\mathbb Q/\mathbb Z \] for all \(A\) in the Brauer group \(\text{Br}(V)\). P. Salberger and A. N. Skorobogatov have shown that the image of \(V(k)\) is dense in \({\mathcal A}\) [Duke Math. J. 63, No. 2, 517–536 (1991; Zbl 0770.14019)]. The author presents another proof of this theorem.
