(I posted this over at sci.math, but no one there answered it.)
I am just wondering...
Let {x} = x - floor(x). Let lnx = natural logarithm of x.
Let A(m) = sum(p=primes <= m) lnp * {lnm/lnp}.
And B(m) = sum(p=primes <= m) lnp.
Then does the limit (as m approaches infinity) A(m)/B(m) exist?
If so, what is it?
0 <= A(m)/B(m) <= 1 for all m. But I don't know if the ratio converges
to a constant.
By the way, I know that A(m) = ln(m^pi(m) /LCM(1,2,3,...,m)), where pi
(m) is the number of primes <= m.
Thanks,
