Weak approximation for degree 2del Pezzo surfaces at places of bad reduction
Knecht, Amanda Leigh

Doctor of Philosophy
This thesis addresses weak approximation for certain degree 2 del Pezzo surfaces defined over the function field of a curve. We study the rational connectivity of the smooth locus of singular reductions of the surfaces to find prescribed sections through these fibers.
