The Chinese remainder theorem states that given coprime integers p_1, …, p_n and integers a_1, …, a_n , we can always find an integer m such that m \equiv a_i \mbox{ mod } p_i for all i . Similarly given distinct numbers x_1,…, x_n and y_1, …, y_n we can find a polynomial f such that f(x_i)=y_i . These statements are two instances of strong approximation for the affine line (over the integers \mathbb{Z} and the polynomials k[x] over a field k ). In this talk we will [...]
