On zeros of cubic L-functions

by Xia, Honggang

Abstract (Summary)
We study the distribution of zeros of cubic L-functions and obtain a zero density theorem by large sieve method. Estimation on the moments of corresponding L-functions and class numbers of a certain type of number fields are followed as applications of the density theorem. Main tools are Heath-Brown's large sieve type inequality on cubic characters and Patterson's work on cubic Gauss sums.
