In this talk we shall explain how methods introduced by Green and Tao can be used to study rational points (Hasse principle and weak approximation) on varieties defined by an equation of the form norm form = split polynomial, where the norm form comes from a finite extension of Q and the polynomial splits into linear factors over Q. This is joint work with Tim Browning.
