# The distribution of totatives

preprint
posted on 06.02.2006, 16:38 by R.R. Hall, Peter Shiu
D. H. Lehmer initiated the study of the distribution of totatives, which are numbers coprime with a given integer. This led to various problems considered by P. Erdos, who made a conjecture on such distributions. We clarify results due to Erdos and prove his conjecture by establishing a theorem on the ordering of residues.
