Abstract

We prove a new upper bound for the smallest zero $\mathbf{x}$ of a quadratic form over a number field with the additional restriction that $\mathbf{x}$ does not lie in a finite number of $m$ prescribed hyperplanes. Our bound is polynomial in the height of the quadratic form, with an exponent depending only on the number of variables but not on $m$.
