Abstract:

The Kloosterman sum Km sub 1, m sub 2 n is considered in the case where n is a prime. An estimate is obtained by using a method of Mordell to express the sum in terms of contour integrals which are in turn put into an accessible form by analytic continuation and use of the Mellin Transform. Author
