Abstract: We establish a new decoupling inequality for curves in the spirit of earlier work of C. Demeter and the author which implies a new mean value theorem for certain exponential sums crucial to the Bombieri-Iwaniec method as developed further in the work of Huxley. In particular, this leads to an improved bound $|\zeta (\frac {1}{2} + it)| \ll t^{13/84 + \varepsilon }$ for the zeta function on the critical line.
