Dirichlet Convolution questionif p is prime and k>1 then let $f(p^{k})=log(p)$, for all other n let f(n)=0. Prove that$(f*u)(n)=log(n)$ for all n where u(n)=1 for all n. ------------ Ok so for this question i have started by saying \[(f*u)(n)=\sum_{j|n}f(j)*u(\frac{n}{j})=f(1)*u(p^k) +f(p)*u(p^{k-1})+...f(p^k)*u(1)\] but i don't know how i can go from here since i can not see how i get to the end answer. I was thinking maybe i could various values of d which divide n expressed in the prime factorisation?? Thanks to anyone who can solve this. |

Did you meant "and $k\geqslant1$"? with Von Mangoldt $\Lambda * 1 = log$ Well, if you look at $n=p_{i_1}^{j_1}\cdot p_{i_2}^{j_2}....$ its prime factorization, and knowing $log(ab)=log(a)+log(b)$ or $log(a^b)=b\cdot log(a)$, you should be fine with sums of logs. |
