Computing higher rank primitive root densities

We extend the "character sum method" for the computation of densities in Artin primitive root problems given by Lenstra and the authors [5] to the situation of radical extensions of arbitrary rank. It leads to dramatic shortenings of the existing higher rank proofs, and enables us to extend their range of application in a more or less straightforward way.
