The fractional part of the sequence {αnk}, where α is an irrational real number and k is an integer, was first studied early this century, initiated by the work of Hardy, Littlewood and Weyl. It seems very natural to consider the subsequence {αpk}, where p denotes a prime variable. The pioneering work in this direction was conducted by Vinogradov [13,14]. Improvements have since been made by Vaughan [12], Ghosh [4], Harman [6,7,8] and Jia [11]. The best results to date have been obtained by Harman for k = 1 [9], by Baker and Harman for 2 ≤ k ≤ 12 [1], and by Harman for larger k [8]. In the following work, we shall adopt a sieve technique developed by Harman in [6] to show the following.
