On the Hybrid Mean Value Involving Kloosterman Sums and Sums Analogous to Dedekind Sums

Di Han and Wenpeng Zhang

Full-text: Open access


The main purpose of this paper is using the properties of Gauss sums and the mean value theorem of Dirichlet L -functions to study one kind of hybrid mean value problems involving Kloosterman sums and sums analogous to Dedekind sums and give two exact computational formulae for them.
