ON WARING'S PROBLEM FOR CUBES AND SMOOTH WEYL SUMS

  • JÖRG BRÜDERN (a1) and TREVOR D. WOOLEY (a2)

Abstract

Non-trivial estimates for fractional moments of smooth cubic Weyl sums are developed. Complemented by bounds for such sums of use on both the major and minor arcs in a Hardy--Littlewood dissection, these estimates are applied to derive an upper bound for the $s$th moment of the smooth cubic Weyl sum of the expected order of magnitude as soon as $s\ge 7.691$. Related arguments demonstrate that all large integers $n$ are represented as the sum of eight cubes of natural numbers, all of whose prime divisors are at most $\exp (c(\log n\log \log n)^{1/2})$, for a suitable positive number $c$. This conclusion improves a previous result of G. Harcos in which nine cubes are required. 1991 Mathematics Subject Classification: 11P05, 11L15, 11P55.
