It asks about the number of lattice points in a sphere of radius R. While it is easy to see that the leading term is asymptotically 4πR 3 /3, estimation of the error term is still open. Compared to the two dimensional case, the Gauss Sphere Problem has received less attention, yet it bears relation with a variety of topics in analytic number theory: average class numbers of negative discriminants, estimates of L functions and Fourier coefficients of modular forms, to name a few. The trivial observation, already known to Gauss, that the error arises only from a shell of constant thickness on the surface of the ball, provides an error term of CR, where C is a calculable (effective) constant. The first breakthrough was made by Van der Corput, who used Poisson summation formula to transform the lattice in physical space to the one in frequency space. In this way, counting lattice points translates to summing
3 the Fourier transform of χ B(R), the characteristic function of the ball of radius R. Although the sum itself diverges, it can be brought convergent by smoothing χ B(R), or equivalently multiplication of a cutoff function in the frequency space. The width H of the range being smoothed, and correspondingly the radius H 1 in the frequency space to be summed, is a parameter that can be adjusted to obtain an optimal error bound. Using trivial estimates, Van der Corput obtained an error CRH 1 for the sum in the frequency space, and an error CR H from the smoothing in the physical space. Balancing these two errors by setting H = R 1/ Van der Corput got an error of CR 3/ for the Gauss Sphere Problem. The basic structure of Van der Corput s argument has remained unchanged ever since. Subsequent improvements came from a more careful analysis of both error terms. In the following discussions we shall use Vinogradov s notations: Definition 1. f = O(g) f g g f C > 0 such that f Cg. f g f g and g f. Subscript variables attached to these symbols mean that the implicit constant depend on the variables. In addition we introduce a short hand for the exponential function. Definition. For any z C. e(z) = exp(πiz). The frequency side was first exploited for improvements, because the Fourier transform of χ B(r) turns out to be (up to some constants) R e(r ξ ) ξ Since the denominator can be removed by Abel summation, the summation in the frequency space essentially involves the partial sum of the exponentials e(r ξ ) ξ Z 3 ξ N Of the numerous ways inverted to deal with such exponential sums, the two most important ones are Van der Corput A and B processes. The A process is also know as Weyl differencing. The B process is Poisson summation and stationary phase, much in the same spirit as discussed above. These two 3
4 processes have been abstracted to give the method of exponent pairs. For more details the reader is referred to Appendix B and [8]. Improvements in the frequency space culminated in the works of Chen [6] and Vinogradov [14], in which they independently improved the estimate of the exponential sum to O ɛ (RH 1/+ɛ ) in a sufficiently large range so that it can be balanced with O(R H) to give the improved error estimate O ɛ (R 4/3+ɛ ). The results of Chen and Vinogradov stood for another several decades before Chamizo and Iwaniec turned their attention to the physical space. Using character sums, they improved the trivial bound O(R H) on the error caused by smoothing to O ɛ (R 15/8+ɛ H 7/8 ), and thus lowered the 4/3 in the exponent further down to 9/ [5]. Currently, the world record on this problem is O ɛ (R 1/16+ɛ ), obtained by HeathBrown [9] in much the same line as [5]. His step forward is an improved error bound O ɛ (R 11/6+ɛ H 5/6 ) of the character sum. Last but not least, it should be mensioned that current techniques are still insufficient to prove the famous conjecture of the true error bound (if true), which is believed to be O ɛ (R 1+ɛ ). The Method of Chamizo and Iwaniec: Extensions, Improvements and Limitations Chamizo and Iwaniec s method has gained popularity in a number of related problems in recent years. Aside from the abovementioned [9], the reader is referred to [3] and [4] for more examples, and to [] for a nontechnical account. This paper provides another application of this method, along with some improvements. The problem considered here is to sum a homogeneous polynomial of zero mean on the sphere. In other words, we provide an estimate for P (x) (1) x Z 3 x R where P is a homogeneous polynomial in three variables such that P (x) = 0 x =R It is wellknown (see Corollary.50 of [7], for example) that P can be written as a linear combination of spherical harmonics times powers of x. The zero 4
5 mean of P ensures that the spherical harmonics involved are all nonconstant. Therefore, it suffices to consider only harmonic homogeneous polynomial of degree ν > 0. Since P has zero mean, there is no main term of the form cr ν+3 as in the Gauss Sphere Problem. Thus the natural form of the estimate is P (x) = O ɛ,p (R ν+θν+ɛ ) x Z 3 x R where we have taken into account of the fact that sup x =R P (x) R ν. Normally, we would expect that (by some abuse of notation) θ ν = θ 0. In other words, the error in estimating the sum of a homogeneous polynomial of degree ν scales according to the degree of the polynomial. For example, Van der Corput s estimate x Z 3 x R 1 = 4πR3 3 + O(R 3/ ) easily generalizes to (see the proof of Lemma 3.5 (c) in [11]) P (x) = O P (R ν+3/ ) x Z 3 x R Naively, we would expect HeathBrown s recordkeeping result to give an error of O ɛ,p (R ν+1/16+ɛ ) for our problem. While this is true, the exponent 1/16 can actually be lowered (to 83/64) if we examine HeathBrown s method more carefully and try to adapt it to the current case. As mentioned in the previous section, HeathBrown decomposed the sum over lattice points into two parts, the long sum and the short sum. The long sum is essentially a smoothed version of the original sum: S f (R) = x Z 3 1 x f( x ) where f is a cutoff function growing like x when 0 x R and decreasing linearly to 0 when R x R + H, and H is the width of the cutoff function f, a parameter tunable for optimal bounds. 5
6 On the other hand, the short sum is S f (R, H) = x Z3 R x R+H 1 x f( x ) The actual sum (1), when P = 1, is then the difference between S f (R) and S f (R, H), which are estimated in different ways. The estimation of the long sum S f (R) essentially follows [5]. More precisely, in the notation in [8], the operation ABAB is performed to S f (R) to obtain the following estimate (thanks to [4] for pointing out a misprint in [5]) S f (R) = 4πR3 3 + πhr + O ɛ ((RH 1/ + R 11/8 H 1/8 + R 1/16 )H ɛ ) () The short sum, on the other hand, is converted to a character sum, an idea dated back to Gauss (see (1.) of [5]). Its estimation is made by Chamizo and Iwaniec, and improved by HeathBrown to (see (3) in [9]) S f (R, H) = πr H + O ɛ ((R 11/6 H 5/6 + R 19/15 + R 7/6 H 1/6 )R ɛ ) Balancing S f (R) and S f (R, H) by setting H = R 5/8, we obtain Heath Brown s bound x Z 3 x R 1 = 4πR3 3 + O ɛ (R 1/16+ɛ ) where, as HeathBrown has remarked, the exponent 1/16 comes from trading the H factors in the term RH 1/ in S f (R) and the term R 11/6 H 5/6 in S f (R, H). The term R 1/16 in S f (R), on the other hand, is not optimal and has some room for improvement. The approach taken in this paper is essentially the same as that in [5] and [9], but two differences should be remarked, the first one more fundamental than the second. The first difference is in the estimate of the short sum. While character sum is used in the case P = 1, in our case when P is a harmonic homogeneous polynomial of degree ν > 0, modular forms come into play. In more detail, let a n = P (x) x Z3 x =n 6
7 and θ(z) = n N a n e(nz) It is known (Example, P 14 of [1]) that θ is a cusp form of weight k = ν + 3/ with respect to the congruence group {( ) } a b Γ 0 (4) = SL c d (Z), 4 c (when P = 1, θ is a modular form, but not a cusp form.) Therefore some powerful estimates of the Fourier coefficients a n of cusp forms are available, of which we use BlomerHarcos bound (Corollary of [1]) a n ɛ,θ n k/ 5/16+ɛ (n, ) 5/8 R ν+7/8+ɛ (n, ) 5/8 and the triangle inequality to obtain Theorem : S f,p (R, H) = O ɛ,p (R ν+ɛ (R 15/8 H + R)) (3) which wins a factor of R 1/8 over the trivial short sum estimate O f (R ν+ H). (The GCD term, which means the largest poweroftwo factor of n, is absorbed in the process of summation.) The second difference is a slight improvement of the estimate (), which is now necessary because the previouslymentioned improvements on the short sum pushes H up, making R 1/16 dominate RH 1/ in the long sum, so removing the R 1/16 is necessary (and possible, as already hinted by Heath Brown). This is achieved by optimizing the two Weyl differencing steps (A processes). Specifically, in [5], the lengths of the first and the second Weyl differecing are set to N 1/ ɛ and U. This, however, is not optimal in all cases, especially when N R 6/5, for which the offdiagonal term actually dominates the diagonal term. This paper improves on this by tuning the lengths of the two Weyl differencing steps (Y in Lemma and T in Lemma 4), if possible, to balance the diagonal and offdiagonal terms. Our new estimate is Theorem 1, which for any homogeneous polynomial P of degree ν having zero mean on the sphere, says: S f,p (R) = O ɛ,p (R ν (RH 1/ + R 17/14 H 1/7 )H ɛ ) (4) Now let s see the effect of balancing (3) and (4). Let s ignore the common factor R ν and any factor of the form R ɛ or H ɛ. Moreover, let s assume 7
8 that in the short sum the term R 15/8 H dominates (the other term actually corresponds to θ ν = 1), and that in the long sum the term R 17/14 H 1/7 dominates (which is the very reason we want to optimize it). We obtain R 17/14 H 1/7 = R 15/8 H which gives H = R 37/64 and P (x) = S f,p (R) S f,p (R, H) = O ɛ,p (R ν+83/64+ɛ ) x Z 3 x R The second term in S f,p (R, H) is clearly dominated, while the first term in S f,p (R) is O ɛ,p (RH 1/ ) = O ɛ,p (R ν+165/18+ɛ ) which is also dominated. Therefore we have succeeded in showing θ ν /64, pushing HeathBrown s exponent (for the purpose of our problem) down by 1/64, or 1/0 in relative terms, which is an improvement of 5%. In Appendix B we use a recent result of Huxley [10] to sketch a proof that θ ν can be further reduced to / Finally let s see how far we could possibly go from here. Assuming Lindelöf Exponent Pair Conjecture [3], we can substitute k = ɛ and l = 1/ + ɛ in (9) in Appendix B to reach θ ν 1 + 7/4, coming from the term RH 1/ in the long sum, which can be traced back to the diagonal term in the first Weyl differencing step. This is probably the best one can expect of the long sum, unless it is redone from scratch in a radically different way. On the other hand, improvements on the short sum may have a larger impact. If we assume Ramanujan s conjecture on modular forms of half integral weight, i.e. (ignoring all the ɛ s in the exponent) and use the triangle inequality we get a n f n k/ 1/ R ν+1/ (R+H) n=r a n f R ν+3/ H Balancing this result with Theorem 1 we obtain a significant better result θ ν 1 + 1/4. If we further assume Lindelöf Exponent Pair conjecture (i.e. k = ɛ and l = 1/ + ɛ) in Theorem 3 we obtain an error bound of O ɛ,p (R 7/6 3k+3l R 10k+10l+6 ) 8
9 Using [10] we can get θ ν /5790. Assuming Lindelöf conjecture we can get θ ν 1 + 5/. Finally we state a conjecture analogous to the famous Gauss Sphere Problem. Conjecture 1. θ ν = 1. In other words. Suppose P is a homogeneous polynomial of degree ν in three variables and P has zero mean on the sphere, then = O ɛ,p (R ν+1+ɛ ) x Z 3 x R A tabular summary of all the proved and conjectured exponents mentioned above can be found in Appendix C. 3 Converting the Long Sum to the Exponential Sum Suppose P is any homogeneous polynomial of degree ν > 0 in three variables, not necessarily having zero mean on the sphere. Definition 3. The long sum refers to the following sum: S f,p (R) = x Z 3 g P (x) where g P (x) = P (x)g(x), g(x) = f( x )/ x, and f is the cutoff function x, x [0, R] f(x) = R(R + H x)/h, x [R, R + H] 0, x R + H Lemma 1. S f,p (R) = P (x)g(x)dx + R 3 + ν 1 +ν +ν 3 =ν ν 1 +ν =ν H ν 1 (R + H) ν R ν 1 ξ Z 3 \0 ξ Z 3 \0 Q ν1 (ξ) sin(πr ξ + πν 1 ) ξ 3+ν 1+ν Q ν1,ν (ξ) sin(πh ξ + πν 1 ) cos(π(r + H) ξ + πν ) ξ 3+ν 1+ν +ν 3 9
10 where Q ν1 and Q ν1,ν are homogeneous polynomials of degree ν. Proof. By Poisson summation formula applied to g (whose validity will be justified later in Lemma 5) S f,p (R) = ξ Z 3 ĝ P (ξ) where the convention of the Fourier transform taken here is ˆf(ξ) = f(x)e( ξ x) R 3 and e(z) is defined to be exp(πiz) for all z C. If ξ = 0, then ĝ P (ξ) = g P (x)dx R 3 is the integral of the smoothed function g P over R 3, which contributes to the main term of the estimate of the long sum, and which actually vanishes if P has zero mean on the sphere. If ξ 0, then by (5.) in [5], we have so ĝ P (ξ) = P ĝ(ξ) = sin(πr ξ ) π ξ 3 R H sin(πh ξ ) π ξ 3 ( ) ( ξ sin(πr ξ ) R πi π ξ 3 H cos(π(r + H) ξ ) ) sin(πh ξ ) cos(π(r + H) ξ ) π ξ 3 By induction on ν, we can show that ( ) sin(πr ξ ) P ( ξ ) = R ν Q ν 1 1 (ξ) sin(πr ξ + πν 1 ) ξ 3 ξ 3+ν 1+ν ν 1 +ν =ν and ( ) sin(πh ξ ) cos(π(r + H) ξ ) P ( ξ ) ξ 3 = H ν 1 Q (R + H) ν ν1,ν (ξ) sin(πh ξ + πν 1 ) cos(π(r + H) ξ + πν ) ξ 3+ν 1+ν +ν 3 ν 1 +ν +ν 3 =ν where Q ν1 and Q ν1,ν are homogeneous polynomials of degree ν. 10
11 Now if we sum over ξ Z 3 \0 and use trigonometric identities, we get sums of the following type ξ Z 3 \0 Q(ξ)e(R ξ ), or ξ m ξ Z 3 \0 Q(ξ)e((R + H) ξ ) ξ m where Q is a homogeneous polynomial of degree ν. By Abel summation, it boils down to estimating sums of the following type Q(ξ)e(R ξ ) ξ Z 3 ξ N This is the sort of exponential sum that will play a key role in the estimation of the long sum. 4 Estimating the Exponential Sum In this section, Q denotes a homogeneous polynomial of degree ν 0 in three variables, not necessarily having zero mean on the sphere. For future convenience (in justifying the convergence of Poisson summation), we introduce a variable h Z 3, but all the estimates in this section are uniform in h. Definition 4. The exponential sum we are going to estimate is the following: Lemma. If R 1 then V N,Q,h (R) = ξ Z3 ξ N Q(ξ)e(R ξ + h ξ) V N,Q,h (R) ɛ,q N ν/+ɛ (min{n 3/, N 5/4 + N 15/14 R 3/14 }) Remark 1.

12 Proof. Clearly it suffices to prove Lemma for Q = a i b j c k with i+j +k = ν. The fact that V N,Q,h (R) N 3/ comes from the trivial bound V N,Q,h (R) ξ Z3 ξ N Q(ξ) #{ξ Z 3, ξ N} sup Q(ξ) N ν/+3/ ξ N To prove the second bound, we transform it into an expression that is the starting place of the estimates in [5]. By dyadic decomposition where so it suffices to show V N,Q,h (R) = V N,Q,h(R) = ξ Z3 ξ N log N k=1 V k,q,h (R) Q(ξ)e(R ξ + h ξ) V N,Q,h(R) ɛ,q N ν/+ɛ (N 5/4 + N 15/14 R 3/14 ) For a + b N, let χ a,b be a piecewise linear function that is equal to 1 on Z [ N a b, N a b ], and 0 on the other integers. Then by Theorem 7.3 in [8], ˆχ a,b (θ) is uniformly bounded by K(θ), where K L 1 (R) log N ɛ N ɛ. Therefore, up to the terms where two of a, b and 1

16 Lemma 3. If R 1 and 1 D N, then V N,D (R) (log N)(N 3/ + R 1/ D 7/6 N 1/1 ) Proof. By dyadic decomposition where V N,D (R) = log D k=1 If D D 0 = N 3/ R 1, then V N, (R) (log N) max V k N,D 1 D 1 D 1 (R) VN,D(R) = y D 0<x N e(f(x, y)) f x (x, y) = R ( 1 x 1 x + y ) = Ry x x + y( x + x + y) 1 Therefore by Theorem.1 of [8] e(f(x, y)) f x(x, y) 1 N 3/ R 1 D 1 0<x N so V N,D (R) N 3/ R 1 N 3/. Now suppose D 0 D N. This is possible only when N R. By applying the B process of the onedimensional Van der Corput s method (Poisson summation and stationary phase, Lemma 3.6 of [8] with F = RDN 1/ ) we get 0<x N e(f(x, y)) = ξ f x(x,y) e(g(ξ, y) 1/8) f xx (α(ξ, y), y) 1/ + O(log(RDN 3/ )) + O(R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 ) + O(1) = e(g(ξ, y) 1/8) f xx (α(ξ, y), y) + O(log R) + 1/ O(R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 ) ξ f x(x,y) where α(ξ, y) satisfies f x (α(ξ, y), y) = ξ, and g(ξ, y) = f(α(ξ, y), y) α(ξ, y)ξ 16
17 For any n N, x n f(x, y) does not change sign, so (replacing n by n + 1) it is monotone in x. Thus α(ξ, y) and hence f xx (α(ξ, y), y) are monotone in ξ. By Abel summation, we obtain e(f(x, y)) V N,U (y; R) inf ξ U f xx (α(ξ, y), y) + 1/ R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 + log R 0<x N R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 V N,U (y; R) + R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 + log R for U f x (x, y) = RDN 3/, where V N,U (y; R) = e(g(ξ, y)) Hence VN,D(R) = y D 0<x N e(f(x, y)) ξ U R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 y D V N,U (y; R) + R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 + D log R R 1/ N 5/4 ( y D V N,U (y; R) ) 1/ + R 1/ N 7/4 + N log R By Lemma 4 below we conclude that V N,D(R) R 1/ N 5/4 (R 1/ DN 3/4 + RD 7/6 N 4/3 ) + R 1/ N 7/4 + N log R N 3/ + R 1/ D 7/6 N 1/1 where we have used 1 D N R to dominate the first two terms over the last two. Lemma 4. If R N and 1 D N, then V N,U (y; R) RD N 3/ + R D 7/3 N 8/3 y D 17
18 Proof. Apply Weyl differencing to V N,U (y; R): for some T [1, U] to be chosen later, T V N,U (y; R) = T 1 e(g(ξ + t, y)) y D y D t=0 U ξ U = U ξ U T 1 t 1,t =0 y D t T(T t ) ξ U U T D + UT U T D + U T where G(ξ, y, t) = g(ξ + t, y) g(ξ, y), and e(g(ξ + t 1, y) g(ξ + t, y)) e(g(ξ, y, t)) y D 1 t T ξ U max 1 t T V N,D (t, ξ; R) = y D e(g(ξ, y, t)) e(g(ξ, y, t)) y D V N,D (t, ξ; R) From the computations in [5] we know that n y G(ξ, y, t) tnd n for n = 1,, 3, so estimates (.3.8) and (.3.9) in [8] are valid (with F replaced by tn and N replace by D). Note that in this case tn D, so the first term in both estimates dominates the second term, yielding V N,D (t, ξ; R) min{t 1/ N 1/, T 1/6 N 1/6 D 1/ } Therefore V N,U (y; R) U (T 1 D + min{t 1/ N 1/, T 1/6 N 1/6 D 1/ }) y D Let s record the numerology of some borderlines. Balancing the first and the second term yields T 1 = D /3 N 1/3. Balancing the first and the third yields T = D 3/7 N 1/7. Balancing the second and the third yields T 3 = D 3/ N 1. Balancing T 1 with U = RDN 3/ 1 yields D 1 = N 7/ R 3. Balancing T with U gives D = N 19/8 R 7/4. Balancing T 3 with U gives 18
19 D 3 = R N 1. Comparing D 0 = N 3/ R 1, D 1, D, D 3 and N gives the following chart: N ordering [R 6/5, R ] D 3 D 0 N, D D 1 [R, R 6/5 ] D 0 D 1,,3 N [1, R] D 1 D 0, N D 3 (1) R 6/5 N R. We always have D 3 D 0 and N D 1. Thus T 1,3 U, so we always take the first argument of the min, which is then dominated by T 1 D.

Suppose Q is a homogeneous polynomial of degree ν 0 in three variables, not necessarily having zero mean on the sphere, and m ν + 3, then Q(ξ)e(R ξ + h ξ) lim N ξ m ɛ,q R ɛ 0< ξ N Moreover, the limit on the left hand side converges uniformly (although not absolutely) in h.

Consider the function S f,p (h; R) = P (x)g(x)dx + R 3 ξ Z 3 \0 ĝ P (ξ)e(h ξ) where the summation over ξ in the second term on the right hand side is taken in the sense of Lemma 5, and ĝ P (ξ) (for ξ Z 3 \0) is given by ĝ P (ξ) = + ν 1 +ν =ν ν 1 +ν +ν 3 =ν R ν 1 Q ν 1 (ξ)e(r ξ ) ξ 3+ν 1+ν RH ν 1 1 (R + H) ν Q ν1,ν (ξ) sin(πh ξ + πν 1 ) cos(π(r + H) ξ + πν ) ξ 3+ν 1+ν +ν 3 Since 3 + ν 1 + ν ν + 3 deg Q ν1 + 3, Lemma 5 applies to show that ξ Z 3 \0 ν 1 +ν =ν R ν 1 Q ν 1 (ξ)e(r ξ + h ξ) ξ 3+ν 1+ν ɛ,q R ν+ɛ Similarly, since 3 + ν 1 + ν + ν 3 deg Q ν1,ν + 3, and R + H R, ξ Z 3 \0 ν 1 +ν +ν 3 =ν ν 1 1 ɛ, QR 1+ν +ɛ R ν+ɛ RH ν 1 1 (R + H) ν Q ν1,ν (ξ) sin(πh ξ + πν 1 ) cos(π(r + H) ξ + πν )e(h ξ) ξ 3+ν 1+ν +ν 3 (when ν = 0, i.e. P is constant, this sum actually vanishes), so we conclude that S f,p,h (R) = ξ Z 3 \0 ν +ν 3 =ν + O ɛ,p (R ν+ɛ ) RH 1 (R + H) ν 1 Q 0,ν (ξ) sin(πh ξ ) cos(π(r + H) ξ + πν )e(h ξ) ξ 3+ν +ν 3

23 By Lemma 5 we know that the sum S f,p (h; R) converges uniformly in h. On the other hand, by Parseval identity we know that the sum converges in L (R 3 /Z 3 ) to g P (h) = x Z 3 P (x + h)g(x + h) Since this is a continuous function, it is identical (everywhere) to the uniform limit S f,p (h; R). In particular, taking h = 0 yields S f,p (R) = x Z 3 P (x)g(x) = S f,p (0; R) = P (x)g(x)dx + O ɛ,p R ν H ɛ (RH 1/ + R 17/14 H 1/7 ) R 3 6 Estimating the Short Sum Now we turn to the short sum. Suppose P is a homogeneous polynomial of degree ν > 0 in three variables, now having zero mean on the sphere. Note that deg P = 0 implies P = 0, which is trivial. Definition 5. By the short sum we mean the following: S f,p (R, H) = x Z3 R x R+H 1 x f( x ) Moreover, we let and define the thetaseries a n = x Z3 x =n P (x) θ(z) = n N a n e(nz) = x Z 3 P (x)e( x z) where as usual e(z) = e πiz. First we suppose that P is harmonic, then by Lemma 9 in Appendix, θ is a cusp form of half integral weight k = ν + 3/ 5/ for Γ 0 (4). For all n N we have: 3

Suppose P is a homogeneou polynomial of degree ν 0 in three variables, having zero mean on the sphere. Then S f,p (R, H) ɛ,p R ν+ɛ (R 15/8 H + R) Proof. By Corollary.50 of [7], we can write [ν/] P (x) = x d P ν d (x) d=0 where P ν d is a homogeneous harmonic polynomial of degree ν d. If ν is odd, then there is no term P 0 in the sum (and actually a n vanishes identically by considering the symmetry x x). If ν is even, then integration over the sphere gives [ν/] 0 = P (x) = P ν d (x) = P 0 S S d=0 so the sum does not include P 0 either. Now by Lemma 6 and Lemma 7, (R+H) (R+H) S f,p (R, H) = f(n)a n n n=r a n n=r [ν/] (R+H) ɛ,p R d (n, ) 5/8 + R ν d+1+ɛ d=0 R ν+ɛ ( R 7/8 R ν d+3/ 5/8+ɛ k log RH R ν+ɛ (R 15/8 H + R) n=r (n, ) RH RH k 5k/8 + R ) 4
25 7 Appendix A: Modularity of the Theta Function Suppose n. Let C[x] denote a polynomial with complex coefficients in the variable x C n. Let C[x] ν be the subspace of C[x] consisting of homogeneous polynomials of degree ν. Let H[x] denote the subspace of harmonic polynomials. Lemma 8. C[x] ν H[x] = span C {( n j=1 a jx j ) ν, (a j ) n j=1 C n, n j=1 a j = 0}. Proof. Define a positive definite inner product on C[x] by letting x α, x β = α!δ αβ. The Laplacian and the multiplication operator M(f) = f x operate on C[x]. It is easy to check that they are adjoints under this inner product. Therefore H = ker = (ran M) We restrict the whole space to C[x] ν, where the inner product is still positive definite, and denote the right hand side by L. It suffices to show that L = (ran M) Since C[x] ν is finite dimensional, it is equivalent to L = ran M For f(x) = α =d c αx α C[x] ν we have ( n ) ν a j x j, f(x) = j=1 Therefore α =d f L f(a i ) = 0, (a i ) C n, α! α! aα x α, α =d c α x α = α! c α a α = α!f(a) α =d n a i = 0 x f(x) f ran M i=1 where we have used Hilbert s Nullstellensatz and the fact that ( x ) is a radical ideal in C[x] when n. (When n 3 it is actually irreducible, or equivalently, prime, in the UFD C[x]. When n = we have x = (x 1 + ix )(x 1 ix ) does not have repeated factors.) 5
26 Now suppose p ν C[x] ν H[x]. Let θ(z) = x Z n p ν (x)e( x z). Then θ is holomorphic on the upper half plane H. Lemma 9. θ is a cusp form of weight ν + n/ on Γ 0 (4)\H, where {( ) } a b Γ 0 (N) = SL c d (Z), N c More precisely, for every γ Γ 0 (4) we have θ(γz) = j(γ, z) ν+n θ(z) where ( c j(γ, z) = d) ɛ 1 d (cz + d)1/ where ( c d) is the Legendre symbol { as extended by Shimura ([13], point 3 in 1, d = 1 mod 4 Notation and Terminology), ɛ d =, and all square roots i, d = 3 mod 4 are taken in the principal branch ( 1 is taken to be e(+1/4).) Proof. If ν is odd then θ = 0 by considering the symmetry x x. Therefore we assume ν to be even. By Lemma 8, ( n ) ν n θ span C a j x j e( x z), a j = 0 x Z n j=1 Therefore we may assume that θ is one of the basis vectors on the right hand side. ( ) a b First we suppose SL c d (Z). If c = 0, then a = d = ±1. In either case we have j(γ, z) = 1, consistent with the fact that θ(z + b) = θ(z) for any b Z. j=1 6
27 Now we suppose c 0, then ( ) ( ) az + b a θ = θ cz + d c 1 c(cz + d) = ( n m (Z/cZ) n x Z n j=1 = ( n e(am /c) m (Z/cZ) n x Z n i=1 ν (( a a j (cx j + m j )) e By Poisson summation formula, ( n ν ( c a j (cx j + m j )) e (cz + d) x Z n j=1 = ( ) ( ) ν im ξ n (π) n/ exp a j ci ξj ( c 4πic ξ πz n j=1 cz+d ( ) ( ) ( n/ n im ξ cz + d =(ci) ν c ic ( n ξ πz n exp c 1 c(cz + d) ν ( a j (cx j + m j )) e x + m c ( ) n/ e j=1 ) 1 πi c cz + d ) cz + d 8πic ξ ) cx + m ) x + m c (5) ) ν ( ( 1 a j ξj e z + d ) ) ξ 16π c We compute the derivative on the rightmost exponential inductively. j=1 where ( n ) ( ( 1 a j ξj e z + d ) ) ( ( 1 ξ = C(z, c, d, a, ξ)e z + d ) ) ξ 16π c 16π c Suppose j=1 C(z, c, d, a, ξ) = i ( z + d ) ( ) n a j ξ j 4π c j=1 ) k ( ( 1 a j ξj e z + d ) ) ( ( 1 ξ = C(z, c, d, a, ξ) k e z + d ) ) ξ 16π c 16π c (6) ) 7
28 Then ( n ) k+1 ( ( 1 a j ξj e z + d ) ) ( ( 1 ξ = C(z, c, d, a, ξ) k+1 e z + d ) ) ξ 16π c 16π c j=1 n +kc(z, c, d, a, ξ) k 1 a j ξj C(z, c, d, a, ξ) Since n j=1 a j = 0, it is easy to see that the second term on the right hand side vanishes, so by induction we have shown that (6) holds for all k N. Therefore the inner sum of (5) is ( 1) ν ξ πz n exp = ( 1)ν (i) n/ ξ Z n e where ( ) ( ) [ ( n/ n im ξ cz + d cz + d c ic 4π j=1 ( ) ( m ξ z + d ) n/ ( ) ν cz + d P (ξ) ν e c c j=1 )] ν ( 1 a j ξ j e ( ( 1 z + d 4 c Now we supppose 4 c and carry out the summation over m in (5). S n (ξ, a, c) = S(ξ j, a, c) = m Z/cZ m (Z/cZ) n e ( ) am + m ξ = c ( ) am + mξ j e = c m Z/cZ n S(ξ j, a, c) j=1 ( ) d(m + mξ j ) e c 16π ) ) ξ We now show that if ξ j is odd, then S(ξ j, a, c) = 0. In fact, since 4 c and (c, d) = 1, d is odd, so S(ξ j, a, c) = [ ( ) ( )] d(m + mξ j ) d((m + c/) + (m + c/)ξ j ) e + e c c m Z/cZ = ( ) d(m + mξ j ) e [1 + e(d(m + c/4 + ξ j /))] = 0 c m Z/cZ ( z + d ) ) ξ c (7) 8
29 Therefore the sum over ξ in (5) is reduced to ( ( 1) ν n ) ( S(ξ (i) n/ j, a, c) z + d c ξ Z n j=1 where the sum over m is reduced to S(ξ j, a, c) = ( ) d(m + mξ j ) e c m Z/cZ ) n/ (cz + d) ν P (ξ) ν e (( z + d c ( ) = e dξ j e c m Z/cZ By the wellknown Gauβ sum, (1 + i)ɛ 1 ( d c c ) d, c, d > 0 ( ) dm ( (1 i)ɛ d c c e = d), c > 0, d < 0 ( c (1 i)ɛ m Z/cZ d c c ) d, c < 0, d > 0 ( (1 + i)ɛ 1 d c c d), c, d < 0 the identities ɛ d = iɛ 1 d, 1 + i = i, z + d c c = cz + d, c > 0 z + d c c = i cz + d, c < 0 ) ξ ) ( ) dm and the extension of the Legendre symbol by Shimura, the Gauβ sum can be written uniformly as ( ) dm e = ( c ) ( iɛ 1 d cz + d z + d ) 1/ c d c Therefore, θ m Z/cZ ( ) az + b = ( 1) ν ɛ n d cz + d (cz + d)ν+n/ P (ξ) ν e(z ξ ) ξ Z n Recall that ν is even, so ( 1) ν = ɛ ν d = 1, and ( ) az + b θ = ɛ ν n d (cz + d) ν+n/ P (ξ) ν e(z ξ ) = j(γ, z) ν+n θ(z) cz + d ξ Z n It is clear that θ is a cusp form, because the sum in (7) is absolutely convergent and decays rapidly as Im z + for all γ SL (Z). c 9
30 8 Appendix B: Better Results with New Exponent Pairs Through personal communication with Chamizo, the author realized that the exponent 83/64 in the estimate P (x) = O ɛ,p (R ν+83/64+ɛ ) x Z 3 x R still has some room for improvement using the new exponent pairs recently obtained by Huxley [10]. Exponent pairs are a useful tool in estimating exponential sums of the following type e(f(n)) n N More precisely, suppose f behaves sufficiently close to a power function x s, in the sense that there is a constant c > 0 such that for all r N, d r dr f(x) c dxr dx r x s then for every ɛ > 0, P > 0, and N > N ɛ,p, f is in the class F(N, P, s, c, ɛ) as defined in P 30, [8]. Exponent pairs allow us to give estimates to the above exponential sum. Definition 6. (P 30, [8]) For 0 k 1/ l 1, (k, l) is an exponent pair if we have the following estimate e(f(n)) s (cn s 1 ) k N l + c 1 N s+1 n N Remark. If f cn s 1 1, then the second term is dominated by the first term. Example 1. By the triangle inequality, (k, l) = (0, 1) is an exponent pair. Exponent pairs are abstractions of the Van der Corput A and B processes as carried out in the main part of the paper. Specifically, if (k, l) is an 30
31 exponent pair, then by applying Weyl differencing (and optimization of the length) we can get another exponent pair ( k A(k, l) = k +, k + l + 1 ) k + On the other hand, an application of Poisson summation and stationary phase (the Bprocess) will give as the pair B(k, l) = (l 1/, k + 1/) For details and proofs we refer the reader to [8]. Example. From (k, l) = (0, 1) we can get B(k, l) = (1/, 1/) and AB(k, l) = (1/6, /3), which are basically the pairs we used to bound V N,D (t, ξ, R). From Van der Corput A and B processes we can get a host of exponent pairs. This is, however, not the whole story. Bombieri and Iwaniec (BI,??), using large sieve inequalities, obtained a new exponent pair (k, l) = (9/56 + ɛ, 37/56 + ɛ) which is unreachable from A and B processes. Their results were subsequently improved by Huxley, giving one more exponent pair (3/05 + ɛ, 69/410 + ɛ) in [10]. New exponent pairs can offer further optimizations. In [3], Chamizo and Cristóbal applied the exponent pair (k, l) = BA (3/05 + ɛ, ɛ) to the following sum V N,D (t, ξ; R) = y D e(g(ξ, y, t)) which occurs in the proof of Lemma 4. The result is Proposition 3.6 of [3], which in our notation says Lemma 10. If (k, l) is an exponent pair, R N and 1 D N, then V N,U (y; R) ɛ RD 3k+l+3 k 3 k+ N k+ + R 1/+ɛ D 3/ N 3/4 y D Plugging Lemma 10 into the final lines of Lemma 3 we get V N,D(R) R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 y D V N,U (y; R) + R 1/ D 1/ N 5/4 + N log R ɛ N 3/+ɛ + R 1/ D k+l+ k+ N k 1 4k+4 31
32 which implies the same estimate for V N,D (R). Finally, backtracing to Lemma, we get VN,Q,h(R) ɛ,q N ν+ɛ (N 3 Y 1 + R 1/ k+l 1 l + N 4k+4 Y k+ ) (8) Balancing the two term gives Comparing Y 0 with N gives Y 0 = N 3k l+5 4k+l+4 R k+1 k+l+ N 0 = R k+ k l+3 Therefore when N N 0, Y 0 N, so we take Y 0 N and the first term in (8) dominates. Otherwise, when N N 0, we can balance the two terms in (8) by setting Y = Y 0 to get V N,Q,h(R) ɛ,q N ν+ɛ R k+1 k+l+ N + k+3l+1 4k+l+4 Combining the two estimates and adding up dyadic intervals we conclude V N,Q,h (R) ɛ,q N ν/+ɛ (N 5/4 + R k+1 4k+l+4 N 1+ k+3l+1 8k+4l+8 ) which improves Theorem 1 to Theorem 3. If f, P and R are as in Theorem 1, then S f,p (R) = P (x)g(x)dx + O ɛ,p R ν H ɛ (RH 1/ + R 1+ R 3 k+1 4k+l+4 H k+3l 1 4k+l+4 ) Now we balance the error terms in Theorem 3 and Theorem using Lemma.4 of [8] to obtain P (x) = O ɛ,p (R ν+1+ɛ (R 7/4 + R 15k+1l+1 40k+40l+4 )) (9) x Z 3 x R Plugging in the exponent pair (k, l) = BA (3/05 + ɛ, ɛ) = (743/04 + ɛ, 69/506 + ɛ) we get the dominant exponent ν / ɛ which is a further improvement on the previous exponent ν + 83/64 + ɛ. The latter can in turn be recovered by taking the well known exponent pair (k, l) = (1/, 1/) = B(0, 1), 3

For simplicity, we have omitted the normalizing factors R ν, the O symbol and all ɛ s in the exponents. References and decimal values are included in parentheses. The ellipsis refers to terms that are clearly dominated by the main term, and question marks indicate conjectures. The last column refers to the optimal value of α such that setting H = R α gives the desired error bound.
