Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In number theory, the Smarandache function S is defined for a given positive integer n to be the smallest number such that n divides its factorial. For example, the number 8 does not divide 1!, 2!, 3!, but does divide 4!, so S(8)=4. Historically, the function was first considered by Fran ois douard Anatole Lucas in 1883, followed by Joseph Jean Baptiste Neuberg in 1887 and A. J. Kempner, who in 1918 gave the first correct algorithm for computing S(n). The function was subsequently rediscovered and named after himself by Florentin Smarandache in 1980.show more
