I've been trying without success to find the paper
Dickman, Karl, "On the frequency of numbers containing prime factors of a certain relative magnitude." Ark Mal., Astronomi och Physik, 22A (10), 1930. I checked at Rice U. and it was not available.
Actually,I would be satisfied with an exposition of the information it contains, in some notes or another paper. This is not extremely important, I'm just curious to learn how the Dickman function is derived.
Does anyone have any ideas?
