Table of Contents


  • Introduction
  • Chapter 1. Preliminaries
  • Chapter 2. Adelic $\mathbb R$-Cartier Divisors over a Discrete Valuation Field
  • Chapter 3. Local and Global Density Theorems
  • Chapter 4. Adelic Arithmetic $\mathbb R$-Cartier Divisors
  • Chapter 5. Continuity of the Volume Function
  • Chapter 6. Zariski Decompositions of Adelic Arithmetic Divisors on Arithmetic Surfaces

In this article, we generalize several fundamental results for arithmetic divisors, such as the continuity of the volume function, the generalized Hodge index theorem, Fujita’s approximation theorem for arithmetic divisors, Zariski decompositions for arithmetic divisors on arithmetic surfaces and a special case of Dirichlet’s unit theorem on arithmetic varieties, to the case of the adelic arithmetic divisors.
