Abstract: Let be the function field of a smooth curve . For every Del Pezzo surface which is an appropriately generic, weak approximation for holds at every place of , i.e., for every closed point of . This combines earlier work in (arXiv:0810.2597) with an analysis of weak approximation near boundary points of the parameter spaces for Del Pezzo surfaces of degrees 1 and 2.
