"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 $\epsilon>0$.
