### Digits in an algebraic irrational number

I am trying to solve a problem and I got a conditional result related to normality of algebraic irrational numbers (Borel conjecture).
I know that by using Ridout theorem or Schmidt subspace theorem ...

### Equidistribution of $\{p_n^2α\}$

Let $p_n$ be the $n$th prime and $\alpha$ an irrational number. Vinogradov proved that the sequence $\{p_n \alpha\}$ is equidistributed. Is it known whether the sequence $\{p_n^2 \alpha \}$ is ...

### Probability distribution from equidistribution - I

Pick a random pair $(a,b)\in\mathbb Z_n^2\backslash\{0,0\}$. Denote $N_r(a,b)$ to be minimum $\ell_r$ norm of vector $(x,y)$ as $(x,y)$ ranges over all non-zero integral solutions to $(x,y)\equiv t(a,...

### Equidistribution of CM points in the principal genus

It is well known that as the negative discriminant $-D$ goes to infinity, the number of quadratic forms of discriminant $-D$ belonging to the principal genus also goes to infinity. Can we say ...

### Explicit numbers with square root cancellation in Weyl's exponential sum

I'm interested in examples of real numbers $\alpha$ where we have
$$\left| \sum_{n=1}^N \mathrm e(\alpha n) \right| \ll N^{1/2} $$
or perhaps with the weaker estimate with the right side replaced ...

### Distribution of square roots mod 1

I was wondering about the distribution of $\sqrt{p}$ mod $1$ this morning, as one does while brushing one's teeth. I remembered the paper of Elkies and McMullen (Duke Math. J. 123 (2004), no. 1, 95–...

### A distribution related to Fermat's two squares theorem

Fermat's two squares theorem tell us that every prime number $p \equiv 1 \pmod 4$ can be written in a unique way as $p = a^2 + b^2$ for two positive integers $a < b$. In particular, we can ...

### Refined equidistribution for the periodic trajectories of Anosov flows?

Duke, and Linnik before him under a restrictive condition, proved that the set of closed geodesics of a given length $L$ is equidistributed on the modular surface as $L \to \infty$. This is a theorem ...

### Primes in arithmetic progression with a moduli equal to a power of 2

I am currently looking for a result stronger than Siegel-Walfisz theorem, which gives an upper bound on the error term $|\pi(x,a,b)-\frac{\pi(x)}{\phi(a)}|$ for particular $a$.
The Siegel Walfisz is ...

### Uniformly distributed sequence in $\mathbb{R}$

We say that a sequence $(x_n)_{n=1}^\infty \subseteq \mathbb{R}$ is "uniformly distributed in $[a,b]$", with $a < b$, if $(x_n)_{n=1}^\infty \cap [a,b] \neq \varnothing$ and
$$\lim_{N \to \infty} \...

### Elementary proof of the equidistribution theorem

I'm looking for references to (as many as possible) elementary proofs of the Weyl's equidistribution theorem, i.e., the statement that the sequence $\alpha, 2\alpha, 3\alpha, \ldots \mod 1$ is ...
