Abstract

Let $q$ be an odd integer, let $\tau$ be the order of $2$ modulo $q$ and let $\xi$ be a primitive $q$th root of unity. Upper bounds for $\sum_{k=1}^\tau \xi^{2^k}$ are proved in terms of the parameters $\mu$ and $\nu$ when $q$ diverges along sequences $S_{\mu,\nu}$ for which the quotient $\tau/\log_2 q$ belongs to the interval $[\mu,\nu]$, with $1\leq \mu$ and $\nu$ close enough to $1$.
