# NAME

Math::NumSeq::DedekindPsiCumulative -- cumulative Psi function

# SYNOPSIS

use Math::NumSeq::DedekindPsiCumulative;
my \$seq = Math::NumSeq::DedekindPsiCumulative->new;
my (\$i, \$value) = \$seq->next;

# DESCRIPTION

The cumulative Dedekind Psi function,

1,4,8,14,20,32,40,52,64,82,94,118,...

where the Psi function is

Psi(n) =        product          (p+1) * p^(e-1)
prime factors p^e in n

The p+1 means one copy of each distinct prime in n is changed from p to p+1. This is similar to Euler's totient function phi(n) (see Math::NumSeq::Totient) but phi(n) is p-1 instead of p+1.

# FUNCTIONS

See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::NumSeq for behaviour common to all sequence classes.

\$seq = Math::NumSeq::DedekindPsiCumulative->new ()

Create and return a new sequence object.

\$i = \$seq->value_to_i_estimate(\$value)

Return an estimate of the i corresponding to \$value. Currently this is based on the asymptotic

value = 15*n^2/(2*Pi^2) + O(n*log(n))

which neglecting the O(n*log(n)) becomes

i ~= sqrt(value) * pi/sqrt(15/2)
