Nice Identity

  1. May 5, 2004 #1
    I don't know if this identity has been found before but I have never seen it before in my study of Merten's function, so I believe this to be original. I derived the following interesting identity involving Merten's function

    [tex] \sum_{ 1 \leq n \leq p - 1 } M( \frac {p}{n} ) = 0, \ \forall \ p \ \epsilon \ \Re[/tex]

    where M(x) is Merten's function.

    Tell me your thoughs ... :smile:

    geraldmcgarvey, you enclose it in [ tex] [ /tex] tags (no spaces though). You can also click on any LaTeX graphic to see the code that generated it.
