# The sum of divisors of $n$

Let

denote the sum of the divisors of .

G. Robin [ MR 86f:11069] showed that the Riemann Hypothesis is equivalent to

for all , where is Euler's constant. That inequality does not leave much to spare, for Gronwall showed

and Robin showed unconditionally that

for .

J. Lagarias [ arXiv:math.NT/0008177] elaborated on Robin's work and showed that the Riemann Hypothesis is equivalent to

for all , where is the harmonic number

By definition,

so Lagarias' and Robin's inequalities are the same to leading order.
