This article proves that there are infinitely many primes of the form a^2 + b^4, in fact getting the asymptotic formula. The main result is that \sum_{a^2 + b^4\le x} \Lambda(a^2 + b^4) = 4\pi^{-1}\kappa x^{3/4} (1 + O(\log\log x / \log x)) where a, b run over positive integers and \kappa = \int^1_0 (1 - t^4)^{1/2} dt = \Gamma(1/4)^2 /6\sqrt{2\pi}. Here of course, \Lambda denotes the von Mangoldt function and \Gamma the Euler gamma function.

Search for primes of the form $m^2+1$
The results of the computer hunt for the primes of the form $q = m^2+1$ up to $10^{20}$ are reported. The number of sign changes of the difference $\pi_q(x) - \frac{C_q}{2}\int_2^x{du \over On the equations$x^2-2py^2 = -1, \pm 2$Let$E\in\{-1, \pm 2\}$. We improve on the upper and lower densities of primes$p$such that the equation$x^2-2py^2=E$is solvable for$x, y\in \mathbb{Z}$.

We use a number field variant of Vinogradov’s method to prove density results about the following four arithmetic invariants: Spacing and A Large Sieve Type Inequality for Roots of a Cubic Congruence. Motivated by a desire to understand the distribution of roots of cubic congruences, we re-derive a parametrization of roots$\nu \pmod m$of$X^3 \equiv 2 \pmod m$found by Hooley.

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

Bounded gaps between primes in multidimensional Hecke equidistribution problems
Using Duke's large sieve inequality for Hecke Gr{\"o}ssencharaktere and the new sieve methods of Maynard and Tao, we prove a general result on gaps between primes in the context of multidimensional
