In the field of Diophantine Geometry, the absolute Weil height function is an important tool to prove various finiteness property. For a given set of algebraic numbers, the infimum of upper bounds on heights for which the finiteness holds is called Northcott number. Vidaux-Videla asked that whether there exists an algebraic field such that the Northcott number is equal to the given constant. Pazuki-Technau-Widmer defined weighted Weil heights interpolating absolute and relative heights. In collaboration with Okazaki, we completely answered to the Vidaux-Videla’s question and obtained a further generalization for weighted heights. In this talk, I will present the results and background.
