Publication# Le carré de la fonction des diviseurs

Abstract

Let d(n) denote Dirichlet's divisor function for positive integer numbers. This work is primarily concerned with the study of We are interested, in the error term where Ρ3 is a polynomial of degree 3 ; more precisely xΡ3(log x) is the residue of in s = 1. A. Ivić showed that E(x) = Ο(x1/2+ε) for all ε > 0 (cf. [9], p.394). We will prove that for all x > 0, we have With this intention, we apply Perron's formula to the generating function ζ4(s)/ ζ (2s) and Landau's finite difference method. It was conjectured that E(x) = Ο(x1/4+ε) for ε > 0. The existence of non-trivial zeros of the Riemann ζ function implies that we cannot do better, that is The study of the Riesz means for ρ sufficiently large shows that their error term, is an infinite series , on the zeros of the Riemann Zeta function added with a development , into a series of Hardy-Voronoï's type, both being convergent. To find the "meaning" of , one could consider the difference But the series (probably) doesn't converge.We will thus substract only a finite part of , weighted by a smooth function ω, the number of terms of the finite part depending on x. If we consider this new error term , we obtain, using a classical method due to Hardy, that for x ≥ 1.

Riemann zeta function

The Riemann zeta function or Euler–Riemann zeta function, denoted by the Greek letter ζ (zeta), is a mathematical function of a complex variable defined as \zeta(s) = \sum_{n

Generating function

In mathematics, a generating function is a way of encoding an infinite sequence of numbers (an) by treating them as the coefficients of a formal power series. This series is called the generating fu

Natural number

In mathematics, the natural numbers are the numbers 1, 2, 3, etc., possibly including 0 as well. Some definitions, including the standard ISO 80000-2, begin the natural numbers w
