Abstract:We investigate several problems related to the multiplicative structure of integers. First, we determine the order of magnitude of the function H2(x, y, z), the number of positive integers n ≤ x having exactly two divisors in ( y, z], in the range of y10 ≤ z ≤ x1/3, and that of the function H3(x, y, z), the number of positive integers n ≤ x having exactly three divisors in ( y, z], in the range of y10 ≤ z ≤ x1/4. Next, we introduce a new function H1,1(x, y, z 1, z2), the number of positive integers n ≤ x having one divisor in (y, z 1] and one divisor in (z1, z 2] and study its order of magnitude. Finally, we investigate problems about localization of divisors of the Euler function &phis;(n) and the Carmichael function lambda(n). We say that a positive integer m is u-dense if whenever 1 ≤ y ≤ m, there is a divisor of m in the interval (y, uy]. We show that for > x integers n ≤ x, both &phis;(n) and lambda(n) are 2-dense.
