Diversity in Parametric Families of Number Fields
Let $X$ be a projective curve over $\mathbb{Q}$ of genus $g$ and $t$ a nonconstant $\mathbb{Q}$rational function of degree $m>1$. For every integer $n$ pick a point $P_n$ on $X$ such that $t(P_n)=n$. Hilbert's Irreducibility Theorem (HIT) tells us that, for infinitely many $n$, the field $\mathbb{Q}(P_n)$ is of degree $m$ over $\mathbb{Q}$. Moreover, this holds true for overwhelmingly many $n$, in the following sense: among the number fields $\mathbb{Q}(P_1), ... ,\mathbb{Q}(P_n)$ there is only $o(n)$ fields of degree less than $m$. However, HIT fails to answer the following question: how many distinct field are there among $\mathbb{Q}(P_1), ... ,\mathbb{Q}(P_n)$? A 1994 result of Dvornicich and Zannier implies that, for large $n$, among those fields there are at least $cn/\log n$ distinct, with $c=c(m,g)>0$. Conjecturally, there should be a positive proportion (that is, $cn$) of distinct fields. This conjecture is proved in many special cases in the work of Zannier and his collaborators, but, in general case, getting rid of the log term seems to be a very hard problem. We make a little step towards proving this conjecture. While we cannot remove the log term altogether, we can replace it by log n raised to a power strictly smaller than 1. To be precise, we prove that for large $n$ there are at least $n/(\log n)^{1e}$ distinct fields, where $e=e(m,g)>0$. A joint work with Florian Luca.
