The function a (n) = dInd is the sum-of-divisors function, so for example a (6) = 12. The number Hn is called the nth harmonic number by Knuth, Graham, and Patashnik [12, sect. 6.3], who detail various properties of harmonic numbers. The 'E' in Problem E might stand for either 'easy' or 'elementary'. Perhaps 'H' for 'hard' would be a better letter to use, since our object is to show the following equivalence.
Robin's Theorem, Primes, and a New Elementary Reformulation of the Riemann Hypothesis

It is proved that the Riemann Hypothesis is true if and only if 4 is the only composite number N satisfying G(N) ≥ max(G(N/p), G(aN)), for all prime factors p of N and each positive integer a.
Robin's inequality and the Riemann hypothesis
Let f(n) = σ(n)/e γ n log log n, n = 3, 4,..., where a denotes the sum of divisors function. In 1984 Robin proved that the inequality f(n) 5041, is equivalent to the Riemann hypothesis. Here we show
A class of Equivalent Problems Related to the Riemann Hypothesis
While studying the Riemann zeta-function, observing some graphs related to it and looking for some relation between the Riemann hypothesis and the absolute value of the Riemann zeta function, we
Abundant Numbers and the Riemann Hypothesis
A computational study of the successive maxima of the relative sum-of-divisors function ρ(n) := σ(n)/n, which occurs at superabundant and colossally abundant numbers and the density of these numbers is studied.
Non-trivial zeros of Riemann's Zeta function via revised Euler-Maclaurin-Siegel and Abel-Plana summation formulas
This paper addresses the revised Euler-Maclaurin-Siegel and Abel-Plana summation formulas and proves the Riemann hypothesis with the aid of the critical strip and the Todd type functions for the
Prime Numbers and Highly Composite Numbers
• Mathematics
• 2013
In 1915, Ramanujan wrote a long paper on “highly composite numbers.” This paper gives us a general method to analyse the growth of arithmetic functions. It is curious that this paper finds no
Proof of the "Stronger" Density Hypothesis
The Riemann zeta function ζ(s) is defined by ζ(s) = ∑∞ n=1 1 ns for R(s) > 1 and may be extended to a regular function on the whole complex plane, excluding its unique pole at s = 1. The Riemann
The Riemann Hypothesis : Arithmetic and Geometry
This paper describes basic properties of the Riemann zeta function and its generalizations, indicates some of geometric analogies, and presents various formulations of the Riemann hypothesis. It
ANOTHER PROOF OF SPIRA'S INEQUALITY AND ITS APPLICATION TO THE RIEMANN HYPOTHESIS
• Mathematics
• 2013
By using new inequalities involving powers of rational functions, we give another proof of an important Spira's relation for the Riemann zeta-function |ζ(1 −s)| |ζ(s)| in the strip 0 < ℜs < 1/2, |ℑs|
