Does anybody know a good reference which gives examples of applications of Artin L-functions to "elementary" number theory? Many thanks!

What counts as elementary number theory, e.g., is a first course in algebraic number theory in that category for your purposes? I realize the question was asked over 2 years ago, so the original purpose for the question may well be long gone, but it'd still be worth answering if the scope of the question were clearer. Might Theorem 3 and Corollary 1 at fit the condition? – KConrad May 4 '14 at 17:10
