# Higher correlations of divisor sums related to primes I: triple correlations

@article{Goldston2001HigherCO, title={Higher correlations of divisor sums related to primes I: triple correlations}, author={D. A. Goldston and Cem Yalçın Yıldırım}, journal={arXiv: Number Theory}, year={2001} }

We obtain the triple correlations for a truncated divisor sum related to primes. We also obtain the mixed correlations for this divisor sum when it is summed over the primes, and give some applications to primes in short intervals.
