# Davenport–Schmidt theorem

Davenport–Schmidt theorem In mathematics, specifically the area of Diophantine approximation, the Davenport–Schmidt theorem tells us how well a certain kind of real number can be approximated by another kind. Specifically it tells us that we can get a good approximation to irrational numbers that are not quadratic by using either quadratic irrationals or simply rational numbers. It is named after Harold Davenport and Wolfgang M. Schmidt.

If α is rational we will have x = 0. With these integers uniquely determined for each such α we can define the height of α to be {style d'affichage H(alpha )=max{|X|,|y|,|z|}.} The theorem then says that for any real number ξ which is neither rational nor a quadratic irrational, we can find infinitely many real numbers α which are rational or quadratic irrationals and which satisfy {style d'affichage |xi -alpha | 160/9.[1] While the theorem is related to Roth's theorem, its real use lies in the fact that it is effective, in the sense that the constant C can be worked out for any given ξ.
