%N Number of (positive) squarefree numbers < n.

%C For n >= 1 define an n X n (0, 1) matrix A by A[i, j] = 1 if GCD(i, j) = 1, A[i, j] = 0 if GCD(i, j) > 1 for 1 <= i,j <= n . The rank of A is a(n + 1). Asymptotic expression for a(n) is a(n) ~ n * 6 / Pi^2. - Sharon Sela (sharonsela(AT)hotmail.com), May 06 2002

%C a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n-1} A008966(k). - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Jul 05 2010

%C For all n>=1, a(n)/n >= a(176)/176 = 53/88, and the equality occurs only for n=176 (see K. Rogers link). - _Michel Marcus_, Dec 16 2012 [Thus the Schnirelmann density of the squarefree numbers is 53/88. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Feb 02 2016]

%C Cohen, Dress, & El Marraki prove that |a(n) - 6n/Pi^2| < 0.02767*sqrt(n) for n >= 438653. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Feb 02 2016

%F a(n) = Sum_{k = 1..n-1} mu(k)^2. - _Vladeta Jovovic_, May 18 2001

%e a(10) = 6 because there are 6 squarefree numbers up to 10: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7.

%e a(11) = 7 because there are 7 squarefree numbers up to 11: the numbers listed above for 10, plus 10 itself.

%e a(13) = 8 because the 12 X 12 matrix described in the first comment by Sharon Sela has rank 8. Rows 2,4,8 (the powers of two) are identical, rows 3,9 (the powers of three) are identical, and rows 6 and 12 (same prime factors) are identical. - _Geoffrey Critzer_, Dec 07 2014
