Simultaneous Additive Equations: Repeated and Differing Degrees
We obtain bounds for the number of variables required to establish
Hasse principles, both for existence of solutions and for asymptotic
formulÃ¦, for systems of additive equations containing forms
of differing degree but also multiple forms of like degree.
Apart from the very general estimates of Schmidt and BrowningHeathBrown,
which give weak results when specialized to the diagonal situation,
this is the first result on such "hybrid" systems. We also obtain
specialised results for systems of quadratic and cubic forms,
where we are able to take advantage of some of the stronger methods
available in that setting. In particular, we achieve essentially
square root cancellation for systems consisting of one cubic
and $r$ quadratic equations.

The Central Limit Theorem for Subsequences in Probabilistic Number Theory
Let $(n_k)_{k \geq 1}$ be an increasing sequence of positive integers, and let $f(x)$ be a real function satisfying
\begin{equation}
\tag{1}
f(x+1)=f(x), \qquad \int_0^1 f(x) ~dx=0,\qquad
\operatorname{Var_{[0,1]}}
f \lt \infty.
\end{equation}
If $\lim_{k \to \infty} \frac{n_{k+1}}{n_k} = \infty$
the distribution of
\begin{equation}
\tag{2}
\frac{\sum_{k=1}^N f(n_k x)}{\sqrt{N}}
\end{equation}
converges to a Gaussian distribution. In the case
$$
1 \lt \liminf_{k \to \infty} \frac{n_{k+1}}{n_k}, \qquad \limsup_{k \to \infty} \frac{n_{k+1}}{n_k} \lt \infty
$$
there is a complex interplay between the analytic properties of the
function $f$, the numbertheoretic properties of $(n_k)_{k \geq 1}$,
and the limit distribution of (2).
In this paper we prove that any sequence $(n_k)_{k \geq 1}$ satisfying
$\limsup_{k \to \infty} \frac{n_{k+1}}{n_k} = 1$ contains a nontrivial
subsequence $(m_k)_{k \geq 1}$ such that for any function satisfying
(1) the distribution of
$$
\frac{\sum_{k=1}^N f(m_k x)}{\sqrt{N}}
$$
converges to a Gaussian distribution. This result is best possible: for any
$\varepsilon\gt 0$ there exists a sequence $(n_k)_{k \geq 1}$ satisfying $\limsup_{k \to
\infty} \frac{n_{k+1}}{n_k} \leq 1 + \varepsilon$ such that for every nontrivial
subsequence $(m_k)_{k \geq 1}$ of $(n_k)_{k \geq 1}$ the distribution
of (2) does not converge to a Gaussian distribution for some $f$.
Our result can be viewed as a Ramsey type result: a sufficiently dense
increasing integer sequence contains a subsequence having a certain
requested numbertheoretic property.

Asymptotic Formulae for Pairs of Diagonal Cubic Equations
We investigate the number of integral solutions possessed by a
pair of diagonal cubic equations in a large box. Provided that the number of
variables in the system is at least fourteen, and in addition the number of
variables in any nontrivial linear combination of the underlying forms is at
least eight, we obtain an asymptotic formula for the number of integral
solutions consistent with the product of local densities associated with the
system.

A MultiFrey Approach to Some MultiParameter Families of Diophantine Equations
We solve several multiparameter families of binomial Thue equations of arbitrary
degree; for example, we solve the equation
\[
5^u x^n2^r 3^s y^n= \pm 1,
\]
in nonzero integers $x$, $y$ and positive integers $u$, $r$, $s$ and $n \geq 3$.
Our approach uses several Frey curves simultaneously, Galois representations
and levellowering, new lower bounds for linear
forms in $3$ logarithms due to Mignotte and a famous theorem of Bennett on binomial
Thue equations.
