Let $V$ be a subvariety of a torus defined over the rational numbers. We study the distribution of points of small Weil’s height on $V$. We simplify the proof and we improve previous results by the first author and S. David. We obtain a totally explicit version of a generalized Dobrowolski result on the Lehmer problem.

Keywords: Heights, Lehmer’s problem
