On an additive arithmetic function

Krishnaswami Alladi and Paul Erdős

Vol. 71 (1977), No. 2, 275–294
Abstract

We discuss in this paper arithmetic properties of the function A(n) = pαnαp. Asymptotic estimates of A(n) reveal the connection between A(n) and large prime factors of n. The distribution modulo 2 of A(n) turns out to be an interesting study and congruences involving A(n) are considered. Moreover the very intimate connection between A(n) and the partition of integers into primes provides a natural motivation for its study.
