We show how this could provide a new approach to Artin's conjecture on primitive roots. We focus on whether a fixed prime has a certain order modulo infinitely many other primes. We also give an estimate for the mean value of one such Dirichlet series."},"keywords":[["multiplicative functions"],["cyclotomic fields"],["Dirichlet series"],["arithmetic functions"],["primitive roots"],"[MATH] Mathematics [math]","[MATH.MATH-NT] Mathematics [math]\/Number Theory [math.NT]"]}
