### Restriction theory of the Selberg sieve, with applications

Abstract:

The Selberg sieve provides majorants for certain arithmetic sequences, such as the primes and the twin primes. We prove an L^2-L^p restriction theorem for majorants of this type. An immediate application is to the estimation of exponential sums over prime k-tuples. Let a_1,...,a_k and b_1,...,b_k be positive integers. For t on the unit circle write h(t) := \sum_{n \in X} e(nt)\$, where X is the set of all n <= N such that the numbers a_1n + b_1,..., a_kn + b_k are all prime. We obtain upp...
