Tool to calculate von Mangoldt Lambda Λ function values. Mangoldt's Λ function is an arithmetic function with properties related to prime numbers.

The function $ \Lambda (n) $ (called **Mangoldt** Lambda) is defined by: $$ \Lambda (n)= {\begin{cases}\ln p & {\mbox{if }}n=p^{k} \\ 0 & {\mbox{else}} \end{cases} } $$

with $ p $ a prime number and $ k \in \mathbb{N}, k \geq 1 $ (a nonzero positive integer).

This is the natural logarithm $ \log (n) = \ln (n) $

Example: The values of $ \Lambda (n) $ for the first values of $ n $ are:

n | Λ(n) |
---|---|

1 | 0 |

2 | $ \ln 2 $ |

3 | $ \ln 3 $ |

4 | $ \ln 2 $ |

5 | $ \ln 5 $ |

6 | $ 0 $ |

7 | $ \ln 7 $ |

8 | $ \ln 2 $ |

9 | $ \ln 3 $ |

By its definition, the Von **Mangoldt** Lambda function $ \Lambda (n) $ allows to describe the value of the natural logarithm $ \ln n $ : $$ \ln n=\sum _{d\mid n}\Lambda (d) $$ with $ d $ a natural integer that divides $ n $.

Example: $$ \begin{align}\sum_{d \mid 8} \Lambda(d) &= \Lambda(1) + \Lambda(2) + \Lambda(4) + \Lambda(8) \\ &= \Lambda(1) + \Lambda(2) + \Lambda (2^2) + \Lambda(2^3) \\ &= 0 + \ln(2) + \ln(2) + \ln(2) \\ &=\ln (2 \times 2 \times 2) \\ &= \ln(8) \end{align} $$

The Hans Von **Mangoldt** Lambda function can be used to calculate $ \gamma $ the Euler-Mascheroni constant with the la formula : $$ \sum_{n=2}^{\infty}{\frac{\Lambda(n)-1}{n}}=-2\gamma $$
