Overview

abstract

  • An arithmetic function ƒ(n) is said to be additive if it satisfies ƒ(ab) = ƒ(a) + ƒ(b) whenever a and b are coprime integers. For such a function we defineA standard form of the Turán-Kubilius inequality states that(1)holds for some absolute constant c1, uniformly for all complex-valued additive arithmetic functions ƒ (n), and real x ≧ 2. An inequality of this type was first established by Turán [11], [12] subject to some side conditions upon the size of │ƒ(pm)│. For the general inequality we refer to [10].This inequality, and more recently its dual, have been applied many times to the study of arithmetic functions. For an overview of some applications we refer to [2]; a complete catalogue of the applications of the inequality (1) would already be very large. For some applications of the dual of (1) see [3], [4], and [1].;
