"On the number of small prime power residues"

Let $p$ be a prime number. For each positive integer $k\geq 2$, it is widely believed that the smallest prime that is a $k$th power residue modulo $p$ should be $O(p^{\epsilon})$, for any $\epsilon>0$. Elliott has proved that such a prime is at most $p^{\frac{k-1}{4}+\epsilon}$, for each $\epsilon>0$. In this talk we will discuss the distribution of the prime $k$th power residues modulo $p$ in the range $[1, p]$, with a more emphasis on the subrange $[1,p^{\frac{k-1}{4}+\epsilon}]$, for $\epsilon>0$.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
