The study of classical Diophantine problems from the modern perspective of Arithmetic Geometry helps you equate the sum of two or more monomials, each of degree 1 in one of the variables, to a constant.

From this **[course_title] **along with its vivid examples and explanation, you will understand the topics like *p*-adic numbers, The Riemann-Roch theorem, Affine and projective varieties, Rational points on elliptic curves etc.

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.

**Certification**

Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

- Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
