Abstract: If f is a polynomial over Z of degree $ n + 1$ with $ n \geqslant 1$, then for each integer $ q \geqslant 1,\vert{\Sigma _{1 \leqslant x \leqslant q}}\exp (2\pi if(x)/q)\vert \leqslant {q^{1/2}}(D,q){d_n}(q)$, provided the discriminant D of the derivative of f does not vanish identically, where $ {d_n}(q)$ is the number of representations of q as a product of n factors.
