%N Decimal expansion of constant related to the growth of the number of totients.

%C Let f_k(x) = x * exp(k (log log log x)^2)/log x. Maier & Pomerance show that, for any e > 0, f_{c-e}(x) << g(x) << f_{c+e}(x) where g(x) gives the number of totients less than x and c is this constant. Loosely, this means f_c(A007617(n)) is about n.
