Gowers norms of multiplicative functions in progressions on average

Xuancheng Shao

Vol. 11 (2017), No. 4, 961–982
Abstract

Let μ be the Möbius function and let k 1. We prove that the Gowers Uk-norm of μ restricted to progressions {n X : n aq(modq)} is o(1) on average over q X12σ for any σ > 0, where aq(modq) is an arbitrary residue class with (aq,q) = 1. This generalizes the Bombieri–Vinogradov inequality for μ, which corresponds to the special case k = 1.
