Distribution of a product of two discrete i.i.d. variables

The problem is to estimate the distribution of product of two $\textit{discretized Gaussian}$ random variables with zero means. The discretized Gaussian means that the p.m.f. looks like ...

Function with zeros plus/minus the primes

While playing with Cohen's pari script prodeulerrat found a function. For $s \in \mathbb{C}$ define $$ f(s) = \prod_{p \text{ prime}} (1-\frac{s^2}{p^2})$$ The product converges everywhere, no poles ...

Two products over primes

For $k \in \mathbb{N}$ define $$ f(k) = \prod_{\text{p prime}}\left(1+\frac{1}{p^k(p^k+1)}\right)$$ $$ g(k) = \prod_{\text{p prime}}\left(1+\frac{1}{p^k(p^k-1)}\right)$$ By the product for zeta ...

product 1+1/p in terms of Chebyshev's theta or psi function

I would like to know if there is any formula for $ \prod_{x<p\leq y}\left(1+\frac1p\right) $ in terms of $\theta$ or $\psi$ functions $ \theta(x)=\sum_{p\leq x}\log p $ and $ ...

Morphisms of Spectral Sequences and alternating products

Let $E_{a,b}^{r}, F_{a,b}^{r}$ be two (co)homologica first quadrant spectral sequences of vector spaces over a field $K$, and $f : E \to F$ be a morphism of spectral sequences. Assume that morphisms ...

Functions that can be written as direct products of other functions; question about terminology and notation

Let $$f : X_0 \rightarrow Y_0, \;\;\; g:X_1 \rightarrow Y_1$$ and define that the "direct product" of $f$ and $g$ is a map $$f \otimes g : (X_0 \times X_1) \rightarrow (Y_0 \times Y_1), \mbox{ such ...

Condition to ensure that the product of closed maps be closed

If $f_i : X_i \to Y_i$ with $i=1,2,\ldots,n$ are closed maps between topological space it is known that their product map $$f : X_1 \times \cdots \times X_n \to Y_1 \times \cdots \times Y_n : (x_1, ...

Bounding Euler products (or almost) by products of zeta functions

Let $s_1, s_2 \in (1/2,1\rbrack$. I would like to bound the product $$A=\prod_p \left(1 + \frac{p^{-s_1} p^{-s_2}}{(1-p^{-s_1}+p^{-1}) (1-p^{-s_2}+p^{-1})}\right)$$ Now, I am almost positive that ...
