Number of solutions of the homogeneous norm form equation. (Lösungsanzahl der homogenen Normformengleichung.) (German) Zbl 0820.11020
In 1972 W. M. Schmidt [Ann. Math., II. Ser. 96, 526-551 (1972; Zbl 0245.10008)] characterized the norm form equations with only finitely many solutions. In the present paper the author shows that under certain conditions, for almost all primes \(p\), the norm form equation with right hand side \(p\) has, up to trivial cases, at most one solution. Moreover, under certain assumptions, than upper bound is given for the number of solutions of general norm form equations.
The proof uses and extends some earlier results of the author [Compos. Math. 88, 25-38 (1993; Zbl 0782.11011)] based mainly on the theorem of Evertse-Laurent-van der Poorten on \(S\)-unit equations.
