This undergraduate-level advent describes these mathematical houses of top numbers that may be deduced with the instruments of calculus. Jeffrey Stopple can pay specified recognition to the wealthy heritage of the topic and old questions about polygonal numbers, ideal numbers and amicable pairs, in addition to to the real open difficulties. The fruits of the ebook is a quick presentation of the Riemann zeta functionality, which determines the distribution of best numbers, and of the importance of the Riemann speculation.

Example text

First, though, we need to define = m 0 1, if m = 0, 0, if m > 0, and m k = 0, if k > m or k < 0. Theorem. If we now define the Stirling numbers by the recursion you discovered, that is, m k =k m−1 k + m−1 k−1 , then Eq. 14) is true. 14) that we are interested in is a theorem. This is perfectly legal, as long as we make it clear that is what is happening. You may have indexed things slightly differently; make sure your recursion is equivalent to this one. Proof. We can prove Eq. 14) by induction. The case of m = 1 is already done.

Show that the sum of the squares of the first n integers is n k2 = k=1 n3 + O(n 2 ). 3 If we have a pair of functions that satisfies f (x) h(x), then from the definitions it is certainly true that f (x) = 0 + O(h(x)). Because adding 0 never changes anything, we might write f (x) = O(h(x)) if f (x) h(x). Many books do this, but it can be confusing for beginners, because “= O( )” is not an equivalence. 2. 5 you proved some simple estimates of the functions ␶ (n) and ␴(n). We next consider the Harmonic numbers, Hn , which seem less connected to number theory.

The horizontal and vertical scales are not the same. Because all the rectangles fit below y = 1/x, the area of the rectangles is less than the area under the curve, so Hn − 1 < log(n). The other inequality is just as easy. We know that Hn−1 = 1 + 1/2 + · · · + 1/(n − 1) and that the n − 1 rectangles with width 1 and heights 1, 1/2, . . ,1/(n − 1) have total area Hn−1 . 2. Now, the curve fits under the rectangles instead of the other way around, so log(n) < Hn−1 . In Big Oh notation, this says Lemma.
