Quantitative uniform distribution results for geometric progressions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


By a classical theorem of Koksma the sequence of fractional parts ({x n}) n≥1 is uniformly distributed for almost all values of x > 1. In the present paper we obtain an exact quantitative version of Koksma’s theorem, by calculating the precise asymptotic order of the discrepancy of ({ξxsn})n⩾1 for typical values of x (in the sense of Lebesgue measure). Here ξ > 0 is an arbitrary constant, and (s n ) n≥1 can be any increasing sequence of positive integers
