On gigantic density of zeros of some signals defined by prime numbers. (English) Zbl 0859.11051

Denoting the sum \(\sum_{p\leq P} {1\over\sqrt p} \cos (t\ln p)\) (which occurs in the Riemann-Siegel formula) by \(G(0;t,0)\), the author considers the more general sums \[ G(x;t,\varphi) = \sum_{p\leq P} {1\over \sqrt {p+x}} \cos \{t\ln (p+x) + \varphi_p\} \] with \(x\in [0,1]\), \(t>0\), and \(p,P\) denoting primes. (For further details of definitions and related results, see the author’s paper ‘On the order of a sum of E. C. Titchmarsh in the theory of the Riemann-zeta function’ (Russian), Czech. Math. J. 41, 663–684 (1991; Zbl 0754.11023) (Russian)]. The main result in the paper is the following:
With \(x\in [0,1/9P^2]\), \(P\in [2,T^{1/9}]\), there exists a zero of \(G(x;t, \varphi)\) of odd order in the interval \((x,x+ P^6 \Delta/T \ln^4P)\), where \(\Delta\) is a sufficiently large positive number.
