## Abstract

We use bounds of mixed character sums modulo a square-free integer q of a special structure to estimate the density of integer points on the hypersurface

for some polynomials

the above hypersurface is known as the Markoff–Hurwitz hypersurface, while for

*ƒ*_{1}(x_{1}) +···+*ƒ*_{n}(x_{n}) =*ax*_{1}^{k1 }...*x*_{n}^{kn}for some polynomials

*ƒ*_{i}∈ Z[*X*] and nonzero integers*a*and*k*_{i}, i = 1,...,n. In the case of*ƒ*_{1}(*X*) = ··· =*ƒ*_{n}(*X*) =*X*^{2}and k_{1}=··· = k_{n}= 1the above hypersurface is known as the Markoff–Hurwitz hypersurface, while for

*ƒ*_{1}(*X*) = ··· =*ƒ*_{n}(*X*) =*X*^{n}and k_{1}=··· = k_{n}= 1 it is known as the Dwork hypersurface. Our results are substantially stronger than those known for general hypersurfaces.Original language | English |
