This paper deals with the quantitative Schmidt’s subspace theorem and the general from of the second main theorem, which are two correspondence objects in Diophantine approximation theory and Nevanlinna theory. In this paper, we give a new below bound for Chow weight of projective varieties defined over a number field. Then, we apply it to prove a quantitative version of Schmidt’s subspace theorem for polynomials of higher degree in subgeneral position with respect to a projective variety. Finally, we apply this new below bound for Chow weight to establish a general form of second main theorem in Nevanlinna theory for meromorphic mappings into projective varieties intersecting hypersurfaces in subgeneral position with a short proof. Our results improve and generalize the previous results in these directions.
