We give a new heuristic for all of the main terms in the integral moments of various families of primitive L‐functions. The results agree with previous conjectures for the leading order terms. Our conjectures also have an almost identical form to exact expressions for the corresponding moments of the characteristic polynomials of either unitary, orthogonal, or symplectic matrices, where the moments are defined by the appropriate group averages. This lends support to the idea that arithmetical L… 
On the mean values of L‐functions in orthogonal and symplectic families
Hybrid Euler–Hadamard products have previously been studied for the Riemann zeta function on its critical line and for Dirichlet L‐functions, in the context of the calculation of moments and
Secondary terms in the asymptotics of moments of L-functions
We propose a refined version of the existing conjectural asymptotic formula for the moments of the family of quadratic Dirichlet L-functions over rational function fields. Our prediction is motivated
Integral Moments of Quadratic Dirichlet L-functions: A Computational Perspective
In recent years, the moments of L-functions has been a topic of growing interest in the field of analytic number theory. New techniques, including applications of Random Matrix Theory and multiple
The second moment theory of families of L-functions
For a fairly general family of L-functions, we survey the known consequences of the existence of asymptotic formulas with power-sawing error term for the (twisted) first and second moments of the
Conjectures for the Integral Moments and Ratios of L-functions in Even characteristic
In this paper, we extend to the function field setting the heuristics developed by Conrey, Farmer, Keating, Rubinstein and Snaith for the integral moments of L-functions. Also, we adapt to function
A recursion formula for moments of derivatives of random matrix polynomials
We give asymptotic formulae for random matrix averages of derivatives of characteristic polynomials over the groups USp(2N), SO(2N) and O^-(2N). These averages are used to predict the asymptotic
In this paper we prove asymptotic formulas for general moments of partial Euler products and the first and the second moments of partial Hadamard products related to central values of the family of
Moments of the Derivative of Characteristic Polynomials with an Application to the Riemann Zeta Function
We investigate the moments of the derivative, on the unit circle, of characteristic polynomials of random unitary matrices and use this to formulate a conjecture for the moments of the derivative of


Multiple Dirichlet Series and Moments of Zeta and L-Functions
This paper develops an analytic theory of Dirichlet series in several complex variables which possess sufficiently many functional equations. In the first two sections it is shown how straightforward
Autocorrelation of Random Matrix Polynomials
Abstract: We calculate the autocorrelation functions (or shifted moments) of the characteristic polynomials of matrices drawn uniformly with respect to Haar measure from the groups U(N), O(2N) and
Small zeros of quadratic L-functions
We study the distribution of the imaginary parts of zeros near the real axis of quadratic L-functions. More precisely, let K(s) be chosen so that |K(1/2 ± it)| is rapidly decreasing as t increases.
On the Fourth Power Moment of the Riemann Zeta-Function
Abstract The function E 2 ( R ) is used to denote the error term in the asymptotic formula for the fourth power moment of the Riemann zeta-function on the half-line. In this paper we prove several
Characteristic Polynomials of Random Matrices
Abstract: Number theorists have studied extensively the connections between the distribution of zeros of the Riemann ζ-function, and of some generalizations, with the statistics of the eigenvalues of
Mean values of L-functions and symmetry
Recently Katz and Sarnak introduced the idea of a symmetry group attached to a family of L-functions, and they gave strong evidence that the symmetry group governs many properties of the distribution
Mollification of the fourth moment of automorphic L-functions and arithmetic applications
Abstract.We compute the asymptotics of twisted fourth power moments of modular L-functions of large prime level near the critical line. This allows us to prove some new non-vanishing results on the
High moments of the Riemann zeta-function
The authors describe a general approach which, in principal, should produce the correct (conjectural) formula for every even integer moment of the Riemann zeta function. They carry it out for the
Random Matrix Theory and ζ(1/2+it)
Abstract: We study the characteristic polynomials Z(U, θ) of matrices U in the Circular Unitary Ensemble (CUE) of Random Matrix Theory. Exact expressions for any matrix size N are derived for the
On the Mean Value of L(1/2, χ ) FW Real Characters
Asymptotic formulae are derived for the sums ZL''(i,x), where k=l or 2 and x runs over all Dirichlet characters defined by Kronecker's symbol ^ with d being restricted to fundamental discriminants in
