Abstract
We prove that the Kloosterman sum $S(1,1;c)$ changes sign infinitely often as $c$ runs over squarefree moduli with at most 10 prime factors, which improves the previous results of Fouvry and Michel, SivakFischler and Matomäki, replacing 10 by 23, 18 and 15, respectively. The method combines the Selberg sieve, equidistribution of Kloosterman sums and spectral theory of automorphic forms.

Abstract
In this paper, we prove a quantitative version of the statement that every nonempty finite subset of ℕ+ is a set of quadratic residues for infinitely many primes of the form [n c ] with 1 ≤ c ≤ 243/205. Correspondingly, we can obtain a similar result for the case of quadratic nonresidues under reasonable assumptions. These results generalize the previous ones obtained by Wright in certain aspects.

A note on the moments of Kloosterman sums

Abstract
In this note, we deduce an asymptotic formula for even power moments of Kloosterman sums based on the important work of N. M. Katz on Kloosterman sheaves. In a similar manner, we can also obtain an upper bound for odd power moments. Moreover, we shall give an asymptotic formula for odd power moments of absolute Kloosterman sums. Consequently, we find that there are infinitely many $ a＼bmod p$ such that $ S(a,1;p)＼gtrless 0$ as $ p＼rightarrow +＼infty .$
