The Schmidt subspace theorem is a deep generalization of Roth's theorem in Diophantine approximation to the setting of hyperplanes in projective space. Another well-known generalization of Roth's theorem is the theorem of Wirsing, which extends Roth's theorem from rational points to algebraic points of bounded degree. In a similar way, I will discuss some results giving a version of Schmidt's theorem for algebraic points of bounded degree.
