Abstract

Knowing the number of solutions for a Diophantine equation is an important step to study various arithmetic problems. Igusa originated the study of Igusa zeta functions associated to local Diophantine problems. Multiplying all these local Igusa zeta functions we obtain the global version in the natural way. Unfortunately, investigations on global Igusa zeta functions are rare up to now. Reformulating the global Igusa zeta function via the number of morphisms between algebraic systems we discover a new aspect: the multivariable Euler product of Igusa type and its applications. A purpose of this paper is to encourage experts for further studies on global Igusa zeta functions by treating a simple interesting example.
