The 13 chapters of this book centre around the proof ofTheorem 1 of Faltings' paper "Diophantine approximation onabelian varieties", Ann. Math.133 (1991) and together givean approach to the proof that is accessible to Ph.D-levelstudents in number theory and algebraic geometry. Eachchapter is based on an instructional lecture given by itsauthor ata special conference for graduate students, on thetopic of Faltings' paper.
