    Abstract

    The theory of metric Diophantine approximation can be studied from many di erent perspectives. The problems studied in this thesis all concern questions on integer polynomials. Simultaneous rational approximation to integer polynomials is studied in the p-adic metric. Next, the nature of the closest root to an argument of a leading polynomial is studied in the Euclidian and p-adic metrics. Finally the nature of regular systems for third degree polynomials is investigated.
