## Appendix A. Some Euler Products

This appendix is devoted to proving Lemma 8.3, 15.2, 15.3, 16.1 and 16.2. For notational simplicity we shall write

*Proof of Lemma 8.3. Note that*

which are henceforth assumed. We discuss in three cases.

*Case 1. (q, dh) = 1.*

We have

It follows that

This together with the relations

yields (A.1).

*Case 2. q|h.*

We have

so that

This yields (A.3).

This completes the proof.

*Proof of Lemma 16.1. For any q, r, d and l we have*

Hence

and

On the other hand we have

It follows that

It is direct to verify that in either case the assertion holds.

*Proof of Lemma 16.2.* We give a sketch only. If *dl < D, (dl, D)* = 1 and |s âˆ’ 1| â‰¤ 5Î±, then

with

The assertion follows by discussing the cases Ï‡(2) 6= 1 and Ï‡(2) = 1 respectively
