Abstract: Let be a fixed number field, and assume that is Galois over . Previously, the author showed that when estimating the number of prime ideals with norm congruent to modulo via the Chebotarëv Density Theorem, the mean square error in the approximation is small when averaging over all and all appropriate . In this article, we replace the upper bound by an asymptotic formula. The result is related to the classical BarbanDavenportHalberstam Theorem in the case .
