In this joint work with Stephan Baier, we prove a subconvexity bound for Godement-Jacquet L-functions associated with Maass forms for SL(3,Z). The bound arrives from extending a method of M. Jutila (with new ingredients and innovations) on exponential sums with Fourier coefficients of holomorphic cusp forms for SL(2,Z) to a GL(3) setting.
