Baker, Transcendental Number Theory, Cambridge University Press, Gives a broad but very concise introduction to Diophantine approximation. In particular, the book discusses linear forms in logarithms of algebraic numbers. ISBN This volume contains 22 research and survey papers on recent developments in the field of diophantine approximation. The first article by Hans Peter Schlickewei is devoted to the scientific work of Wolfgang Schmidt. Further contributions deal with the subspace theorem and its applications to diophantine equations and to the study of linear recurring sequences.
