6 (Siegel-Walfisz). For any number rl > 0 there is a positive number C(7]) such that for all coprime positive integers a, d with d < In'7 x, 1f(x; d, a) = CP(d) Ii (x) +0 (x exp ( -C(7])Vlnx)) , where the implied big-O constant is absolute. Discussions of this and related theorems are found in [Davenport 1980]. 6 has not been computed for any 7] :2' 1. Furthermore it is not computable from the method of proof of the theorem. 6. 4. 4 Chapter 1 PRIMES! Exponential sums Beyond the Riemann zeta function and special arithmetic functions that arise in analytic number theory, there are other important entities, the exponential sums.

In fact, it is a celebrated theorem of [Weyl 1916] that the sequence (f(n)), n = 1,2, ... is equidistributed modulo 1 if and only if for every integer h i- 0 we have E(f; 0, N, h) = o(N). Though distribution of fractional parts is a constant undercurrent, the theory of exponential sums has wide application across many subfields of number theory. We give here a brief summary of the relevance of such sums to prime-number studies, ending with a brief, somewhat qualitative tour of Vinogradov's resolution of the ternary-Goldbach problem.

For example, 23 divides Mn. 1 implies there are infinitely many such primes q. Various interesting conjectures have been made in regard to Mersenne numbers, for example the "new Mersenne conjecture" of P. Bateman, J. Selfridge, and S. Wagstaff. 3 Primes of special form 23 1644 that the exponents q for which 2 q - 1 is prime and 29 :s; q :s; 257 are 31, 67, 127, and 257. ) Considering that the numerical evidence below 29 was that every prime except 11 and 23 works, it is rather amazing that Mersenne would assert such a sparse sequence for the exponents.
