### Limit of the ratio of the square root of a Mersenne number to the product of its prime factors

Mersenne numbers with prime exponents are numbers of the form $M_p = 2^p-1$, where $p$ is prime. Suppose that $p$ is such that $M_p$ has exactly two prime factors, $\rho, P$. Given $\epsilon > 0$, ...

### On the summatory function of $\Lambda(n)/n$

In this paper is written that the prime number theorem in the form $\psi(x) = ( 1 + o(1) ) x$ is elementary equivalent to $$\sum_{n \le x } \frac{\Lambda(n)}{n} = \log x - \gamma + o(1)$$ I started ...
