# On The Exponent Of Distribution Of The Ternary Divisor Function

We show that the exponent of distribution of the ternary divisor function d(3) in arithmetic progressions to prime moduli is at least 1/2 + 1/46, improving results of Friedlander-Iwaniec and Heath-Brown. Furthermore, when averaging over a fixed residue class, we prove that this exponent is increased to 1/2 + 1/34.
