Gaussian Distribution for the Divisor Function and Hecke Eigenvalues in Arithmetic Progressions

  title={Gaussian Distribution for the Divisor Function and Hecke Eigenvalues in Arithmetic Progressions},
  author={{\'E}tienne Fouvry and SATADAL GANGULY and E. Kowalski and Philippe Michel},
We show that, in a restricted range, the divisor function of integers in residue classes modulo a prime follows a Gaussian distribution, and a similar result for Hecke eigenvalues of classical holomorphic cusp forms. Furthermore, we obtain the joint distribution of these arithmetic functions in two related residue classes. These results follow from asymptotic evaluations of the relevant moments, and depend crucially on results on the independence of monodromy groups related to products of… CONTINUE READING
