Are the primes normally distributed? Or is this the Riemann hypothesis?

Forgive my very naive question. I know next to nothing about number theory, but I'm curious about the state of the art on the distribution of primes. Let $\mathrm{Li}(x)$ be the offset logarithmic ...

Distribution function for divisors of an Integer

For a fixed $n$, let $D_n(x) = \{ d|n : d \leq x \}$ . We assume here $p \leq x \leq n/p$, where $p$ is the smallest prime factor of $n$. For example if $n = p^i$ for some prime $p$ then $D_n(x) ...

A Conjecture on the Density of a subset of integers

Let $X$ denote the largest subset of odd integers with the property that every exponent in the prime factorization of any $x \in X$ belongs to $X$. The conjecture states that the density of $X$ among ...

Erdos-Kac for squarefree numbers

In its usual form, the Erdos-Kac Theorem states that if $f(n) : \mathbb{N} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ is a strongly additive function with $|f(p)| \le 1$ for all primes $p$, then $$\frac{|\{n \le x : ...

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 ...
