The recent version of this thorough exam of the distribution of leading numbers in mathematics progressions deals many revisions and corrections in addition to a brand new part recounting fresh works within the box. The publication covers many classical effects, together with the Dirichlet theorem at the life of leading numbers in arithmetical progressions and the theory of Siegel. It additionally offers a simplified, better model of the massive sieve procedure.

Hence The function L p (s; X) is uniquely characterized also by i) and by the above equalities. §3. l) -1, =0 If n '" 0 mod e, then n is even so that Bn, X � 0 by Theorem 2, §2. Hence, by the uniqueness mentioned above, if XC-I) = -1. On the other hand, if XC-I) 1, then for n == 0 mod e so that for n;:: 1, n == 0 mod e. Hence Lp Cs; X) is certainly not identically O. 5. converse of Theorem 1 is also partially true. Although this will never be used in the following (exce pt for an elementary lemma below), the result seems inter� esting enough to be mentioned here.
