Asymptotic bounds on $\pi^{-1}(x)$ (inverse prime counting function)

What are the current best asymptotic bounds on $\pi^{-1}(x)$, where $\pi(x)$ denotes the prime counting function (number of primes at most $x$)? In other words, I am curious about the state of the ...

Limit of Sequence of unusual Prime Product

Let $p_n$ be the nth prime and $p_L$ be closest to its square root: \begin{equation} p_L^2 \approx p_n \approx x \end{equation} Let $\sigma \in Z^+$ be a positive integer constant. Define the ...

What is the growth rate for divisibility of integers

For a natural number $n\geq 1$, let $PF(n)$ denote the number of prime factors (with multiplicity) of $n$. For example, since $48=2*2*2*2*3$, we have $PF(48)=5$. For any natural number $N\geq 1$, ...

About the asymptotics of LCM

Let $g(x,c)$ be a uniformly random integer in the range $(x,x+c)$ and $LCM[x_1,x_2...x_i]$ the lowest common multiple of the integers $x_i$. A) Does the limit of (the asymptotics of ...

Asymptotics for the number of ways to sum primes such that the sum is <= n

Hello! Given $n$ I would like to find a lower bound (or a tight asymptotics) for the number $s(n)$ of solutions to $$ p_1 + \ldots + p_k \leq n \quad (1) $$ where $k$ is arbitrary and $p_1 \leq ...

Asymptotic Distribution of Primes

Given an integer $n$ and let $1\leq m\leq n$ be such that $n$ and $m$ are coprimes define $$ \mathcal{N_{n,m}}:=\text{the set of primes $p$ such that $p\equiv{m}\hspace{0.1cm}\mathrm{mod}(n)$}. $$ ...

Asymptotic density of k-almost primes

Let $\pi_k(x)=|\{n\le x:n=p_1p_2\cdots p_k\}|$ be the counting function for the k-almost primes, generalizing $\pi(x)=\pi_1(x)$. A result of Landau is $$\pi_k(x)\sim\frac{x(\log\log ...
