Martin}, title={Asymmetries in the {S}hanks{R}{\'e}nyi prime number race}, abstract={It has been wellobserved that an inequality of the type $\pi(x;q,a) > \pi(x;q,b)$ is more likely to hold if $a$ is a nonsquare modulo $q$ and $b$ is a square modulo $q$ (the socalled ``Chebyshev Bias''). For instance, each of $\pi(x;8,3)$, $\pi(x;8,5)$, and $\pi(x;8,7)$ tends to be somewhat larger than $\pi(x;8,1)$. However, it has come to light that the tendencies of these three $\pi(x;8,a)$ to dominate $\pi(x;8,1)$ have different strengths. A related phenomenon is that the six possible inequalities of the form $\pi(x;8,a_1) > \pi(x;8,a_2) > \pi(x;8,a_3)$ with {$a_1,a_2,a_3$}={3,5,7} are not all equally likelysome orderings are preferred over others. In this paper we discuss these phenomena, focusing on the moduli $q=8$ and $q=12$, and we explain why the observed asymmetries (as opposed to other possible asymmetries) occur.}, booktitle={Number theory for the millennium, II (Urbana, IL, 2000)}, publisher={A K Peters}, year= 2002, address={Natick, MA}, mrnumber={1 956 261}, note={\href{http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0010086}{Preprint}} }
