An elementary approach to the distribution of primes in large arithmetic progressions

Olivier Ramare

CNRS / Institut de Mathematiques de Marseille

Let X be some large parameter, and q be an integer of size about X^{1/2}. We will present a straightforward proof of the estimate

sum_{p\le X} exp(2i Pi p/q) \ll X/(\log X)^100

due to I.M. Vinogradov in 1937 and comment on its meaning. Here p ranges through the primes.
