# 2 question about dirichlet series generating functions

my question is , is there a sequence so we have the Dirichlet series

$$\frac{\zeta(s+1/2)}{\zeta(s)}= \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{a(n)}{n^s}$$

and the second is, given the dirichlet series for the division function

$$\zeta (s) \zeta(s-a) =\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{\sigma _{a}(n)}{n^s}$$

for some $a > 0$ , is there a closed formula for

$$\sum_{x \ge n}\sigma _{a} (n) =A(x)$$

• Try applying Perron's formula to the known Dirichlet generating function. Asymptotics of the average order sums are known and given here.

There is no closed formula for $$\sum_{n\leq x}\sigma_a(n)$$ but plenty of good approximations are known, from summation by parts and Dirichlet's hyperbola method. About your first question, since: $$\frac{1}{\zeta(s)} = \sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{\mu(n)}{n^s},\qquad \zeta\left(s+\tfrac{1}{2}\right) = \sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1/\sqrt{n}}{n^s}$$ by taking $$a(n)=\sum_{d\mid n}\frac{\mu\left(\tfrac{n}{d}\right)}{\sqrt{d}} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{n}}\sum_{d\mid n}\mu(d)\sqrt{d}$$ we get $$\sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{a(n)}{n^s} = \sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1}{n^{s+1/2}}\prod_{p\mid n}\left(1-\sqrt{p}\right)=\frac{\zeta\left(s+\tfrac{1}{2}\right)}{\zeta(s)}$$ as wanted, by Dirichlet's convolution.
