Exponential sums nondegenerate relative to a lattice

Alan Adolphson and Steven Sperber

Vol. 3 (2009), No. 8, 881–906

Our previous theorems on exponential sums often did not apply or did not give sharp results when certain powers of a variable appearing in the polynomial were divisible by p. We remedy that defect in this paper by systematically applying p-power reduction, making it possible to strengthen and extend our earlier results.
