Hasse principle for a family of K3 surfaces Loughran, Daniel


In this talk we study the Hasse principle for the family of "diagonal K3 surfaces of degree 2", given by the explicit equations: $$w^2 = A_1 x_1^6 + A_2 x_2^6 + A_3 x_3^6.$$ I will explain how many such surfaces, when ordered by their coefficients, have a Brauer-Manin obstruction to the Hasse principle. This is joint work with Damián Gvirtz and Masahiro Nakahara.
