Rational approximation and extension of scalars

We establish a new transference principle which, by extending scalars from $\mathbb{Q}$ to a number field, and by combination with a result of P. Bel, allows us to construct algebraic curves defined over $\mathbb{Q}$, of arbitrarily large degree, containing points that are very singular with respect to approximation by rational points. The results also admit interpretation in the setting of parametric geometry of numbers.

Joint work with Anthony Poels (U. Ottawa, Canada).
