A subconvexity bound for modular $L$-functions, part 2
This is a continuation of last week's talk. I will sketch Matti Jutila's proof of a subconvex bound for a modular $L$-function on the critical line. The main ideas are an approximate functional equation, the use of Farey fractions, Voronoi's summation formula, and exponential integral and sum estimates.
