On the mean values of Dedekind sums
Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux, Tome 8 (1996) no. 2, pp. 429-442.

On étudie dans ce papier le comportement asymptotique de valeurs moyennes de sommes de Dedekind. On donne en particulier une formule asymptotique améliorant un résultat antérieur.

In this paper we study the asymptotic behavior of the mean value of Dedekind sums, and give a sharper asymptotic formula.
