Abstract: Classical Diophantine approximation, roughly speaking, seeks to quantify the statement "the rationals are dense in the reals".

In this seminar, I will explain how analogues of results from this area can be proven in number fields: as an example, I will discuss a classical result, namely Gallagher's zero-one law, give a statement of this in number fields, and sketch a proof, outlining th
