Abstract: We fix a maximal order $ \mathcal O$ in $ \mathbb{F}=\mathbb{R},\mathbb{C}$ or $ \mathbb{H}$, and an $ \mathbb{F}$-hermitian form $ Q$ of signature $ (n,1)$ with coefficients in $ \mathcal O$. Let $ k\in \mathbb{N}$. By applying a lattice point theorem on an $ n$-dimensional $ \mathbb{F}$-hyperbolic space, we give an asymptotic formula with an error term, as $ t\to +\infty $, for the number $ N_t(Q,-k)$ of integral solutions $ x\in \mathcal O^{n+1}$ of the equation $ Q[x]=-k$ satisfying $ \vert x_{n+1}\vert\leq t$.
