On a conjecture of Kato and Kuzumaki
In 1986, Kato and Kuzumaki stated several conjectures in order to give a diophantine characterization of cohomological dimension of fields in terms of projective hypersurfaces of small degree and Milnor -theory. We establish these conjectures for finite extensions of and , and we prove new local-global principles over number fields and global fields of positive characteristic in the context of Kato and Kuzumaki’s conjectures.
