Summary: Let $Q(u, v)$ be a positive definite binary quadratic form with arbitrary real coefficients. For large real $x$, one may ask for the number $B(x)$ of primitive lattice points (integer points $(m, n)$ with $\gcd (M,n) =1$) in the ellipse disc $Q(u, v)\le x$, in particular, for the remainder term $R(x)$ in the asymptotics for $B(x)$. While upper bounds for $R(x)$ depend on zero-free regions of the zeta-function, and thus, in most published results, on the Riemann Hypothesis, the present paper deals with a lower estimate. It is proved that the absolute value or $R(x)$ is, in integral mean, at least a positive constant $c$ time $x^{1/4}$. Furthermore, it is shown how to find an explicit value for $c$, for each specific given form $Q$. (English)
