Abstract

Let f be an integral quadratic form in three or more variables and g any form in the genus of f. There exist an effectively determinable prime p and a form g′, belonging to the proper spinor genus of g, such that g′ is a p-neighbor of f in the graph of f. Using this, an alternative decision procedure for the spinor equivalence of quadratic forms is given.
