### Abstract

The following Khintchine-type theorem is proved for manifolds M embedded in R^{ k} which satisfy some mild curvature conditions. The inequality |q·x| <?(|q|) where ?(r) ? 0 as r ? 8 has finitely or infinitely many solutions qeZ^{ k} for almost all (in induced measure) points x on M according as the sum S_{ r}^{ = 1/8} ?(r)r^{ k-2} converges or diverges (the divergent case requires a slightly stronger curvature condition than the convergent case). Also, the Hausdorff dimension is obtained for the set (of induced measure 0) of point in M satisfying the inequality infinitely often when ?(r) =r^{ -t} . t >k - 1. © 1990 Indian Academy of Sciences.
