COMMENTS

The natural density of the squarefree numbers is 6/Pi^2, so An < a(n) < Bn for all large enough n with A < 6/Pi^2  1/2 and B > 3/Pi^2. The Schnirelmann density of the squarefree numbers is 53/88 > 1/2, and so a(n) > 0 for all n > 1 (in fact, a(n+1) >= 9n/88). It follows from Theoreme 3 bis. in Cohen, Dress, & El Marraki along with finite checking up to 16089908 that 0.10792n < a(n) < 0.303967n for n > 36. (The lower bound holds for n > 1.)

FORMULA

a(n) = sum(i=1..floor(n/2), abs(mu(i)*mu(ni)) ).  Wesley Ivan Hurt, May 20 2013


EXAMPLE

12=1+11=2+10=5+7=6+6 hence a(12)=4.
