For a projective variety containing infinitely many rational points, a natural question is to
count the number of such points of height less than some bound B. The Manin-Peyre
conjectures predict, for Fano varieties, an asymptotic formula for this number as B goes
to infinity in terms of geometric invariants of the variety. We will discuss in this talk the
Manin-Peyre’s conjectures for the family of varieties given by the equation
x1y2y3 · · · yn + x2y1y3 · · · yn + · · · + xny1y2 · · · yn−1 = 0 (for n >= 2).
