A uniform prime number theorem for arithmetic progressions


I will describe a version of the prime number theorem for arithmetic progressions that is uniform enough to deduce the Siegel-Walfisz theorem, Hoheisel's asymptotic for short intervals, a Brun-Titchmarsh bound and Linnik's bound for the least prime in an arithmetic progression. The proof combines Vinogradov-Korobov's zero-free region, a log-free zero density estimate and the Deuring-Heilbronn zero repulsion phenomenon. This is joint work with Jesse Thorner.
