Let n be a positive integer and let Λ(n) = ln p, if n is a prime power 0, otherwise. 3. For real number x ≥ 1, ψ(x) = Λ(n) = ln p. 2. There exist positive constants c1 and c2 such that c1 x ≤ ψ(x) ≤ c2 x. Proof. For x ≥ 4, let S= n≤x ln n − 2 ln n. 2 with f (n) = ln n, we find that x ln n = n≤x x ln tdt + 1 1 1 {t} dt − {x} ln x + {y} ln y t = x ln x − x + O(ln x). 2) This implies that S = x ln 2 + O(ln x). 3) February 13, 2009 16:7 World Scientific Book - 9in x 6in AnalyticalNumberTheory 43 Elementary Results on the Distribution of Primes whenever x ≥ x0 ≥ 4.

One of the proofs relies on showing that M (µ) = 0 (see [4]). In this section, we will show that if M (µ) = 0 then the Prime Number Theorem is true. Conversely, the Prime Number Theorem implies that M (µ) = 0. 8. The Prime Number Theorem is equivalent to the relation M (µ) = 0.

For real number x ≥ 1, we have √ θ(x) = ψ(x) + O( x). Proof. We first note that the difference of ψ(x) and θ(x) is ψ(x) − θ(x) = ln p pm ≤x m≤2 ln p + = √ p≤ x m=2 1. 1). 3, we deduce the following corollary. 4.
