Abstract We show how the Selberg $\Lambda ^2$ -sieve can be used to obtain power saving error terms in a wide class of counting problems which are tackled using the geometry of numbers. Specifically, we give such an error term for the counting function of $S_5$ -quintic fields. 
Central limit theorem for Artin $L$-functions
We show that the sum of the traces of Frobenius elements of Artin $L$-functions in a family of $G$-fields satisfies the Gaussian distribution under certain counting conjectures. We prove the counting
On the squarefree values of $a^4+b^3$
In this article, we prove that the density of integers a, b such that a + b is squarefree, when ordered by max{|a|, |b|}, equals the conjectured product of the local densities. We show that the same
Counting $G$-Extensions by Discriminant
The problem of analyzing the number of number field extensions $L/K$ with bounded (relative) discriminant has been the subject of renewed interest in recent years, with significant advances made by
On ℓ-torsion in class groups of number fields
For each integer $\ell \geq 1$, we prove an unconditional upper bound on the size of the $\ell$-torsion subgroup of the class group, which holds for all but a zero-density set of field extensions of
A zero density estimate for Dedekind zeta functions
Given a finite group $G$, we establish a zero density estimate for Dedekind zeta functions associated to Galois extensions $K/\mathbb{Q}$ with $\mathrm{Gal}(K/\mathbb{Q})\cong G$ without assuming
An effective Chebotarev density theorem for families of number fields, with an application to $$\ell $$-torsion in class groups
We prove a new effective Chebotarev density theorem for Galois extensions $L/\mathbb{Q}$ that allows one to count small primes (even as small as an arbitrarily small power of the discriminant of
Improved error estimates for the Davenport-Heilbronn theorems
We improve the error terms in the Davenport–Heilbronn theorems on counting cubic fields to O(X). This improves on separate and independent results of the authors and Shankar and Tsimerman [BST13,
Low lying zeros of Artin $$L$$L-functions
We study the one-level density of Artin $$L$$L-functions twisted by a cuspidal automorphic representation under the strong Artin conjecture and certain conjectures on counting number fields. Our
We study various families of Artin $L$ -functions attached to geometric parametrizations of number fields. In each case we find the Sato–Tate measure of the family and determine the symmetry type of
Odd degree number fields with odd class number
For every odd integer $n \geq 3$, we prove that there exist infinitely many number fields of degree $n$ and associated Galois group $S_n$ whose class number is odd. To do so, we study the class


Error estimates for the Davenport-Heilbronn theorems
We obtain the first known power-saving remainder terms for the theorems of Davenport and Heilbronn on the density of discriminants of cubic fields and the mean number of 3-torsion elements in the
The density of discriminants of quartic rings and fields
We determine, asymptotically, the number of quintic fields having bounded discriminant. Specifically, we prove that the asymptotic number of quintic fields having absolute discriminant at most X is a

The average size of the 2-Selmer group of Jacobians of hyperelliptic curves having a rational Weierstrass point
We prove that when all hyperelliptic curves of genus $n\geq 1$ having a rational Weierstrass point are ordered by height, the average size of the 2-Selmer group of their Jacobians is equal to 3. It
Binary quartic forms having bounded invariants, and the boundedness of the average rank of elliptic curves
We prove a theorem giving the asymptotic number of binary quartic forms having bounded invariants; this extends, to the quartic case, the classical results of Gauss and Davenport in the quadratic and
Most hyperelliptic curves over Q have no rational points
By a hyperelliptic curve over Q, we mean a smooth, geometrically irreducible, complete curve C over Q equipped with a fixed map of degree 2 to P^1 defined over Q. Thus any hyperelliptic curve C over

rst three parts of this series, we considered quadratic, cubic and quartic rings (i.e., rings free of ranks 2, 3, and 4 over Z) respectively, and found that various algebraic structures involving
