# Vinogradov's Integral and Bounds for the Riemann Zeta Function

@article{Ford2002VinogradovsIA, title={Vinogradov's Integral and Bounds for the Riemann Zeta Function}, author={Kevin Ford}, journal={Proceedings of The London Mathematical Society}, year={2002}, volume={85}, pages={565-633} }

The main result is an upper bound for the Riemann zeta function in the critical strip: $\zeta(\sigma + it) \le A|t|^{B(1 - \sigma)^{3/2}} \log^{2/3} |t|$ with $A = 76.2$ and $B = 4.45$, valid for $\frac12 \le \sigma \le 1$ and $|t| \ge 3$. The previous best constant $B$ was 18.5. Tools include a variant of the Korobov–Vinogradov method of bounding exponential sums, an explicit version of T. D. Wooley's bounds for Vinogradov's integral, and explicit bounds for mean values of exponential sums… Expand

We give a slight refinement to the process by which estimates for exponential sums are extracted from bounds for Vinogradov’s mean value. Coupling this with the recent works of Wooley, and of… Expand
