Problem 516: 5-smooth totients
(see projecteuler.net/problem=516)
5-smooth numbers are numbers whose largest prime factor doesn't exceed 5.
5-smooth numbers are also called Hamming numbers.
Let S(L) be the sum of the numbers n not exceeding L such that Euler's totient function phi(n) is a Hamming number.
S(100)=3728.
Find S(10^12). Give your answer modulo 2^32.
My Algorithm
The three fundamental properties of phi are (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euler's_totient_function):
(1) phi(p) = p - 1 if p is prime
(2) phi(p^k) = p^{k-1} * (p - 1) if p is prime
(3) phi(xy) = phi(x) * phi(y) if x and y are coprime
A 5-smooth Hamming number can be written as 2^a 3^b 5^c.
From (1) follows that if the successor of a Hamming number is prime, then that prime has a totient which is a Hamming number:
(4) phi(2^a 3^b 5^c + 1) = 2^a 3^b 5^c if 2^a 3^b 5^c + 1 is prime
From (2) and (3) follows that the totient of each Hamming number is a Hamming number, too:
(5) phi(2^a 3^b 5^c) = phi(2^a) * phi(3^b) * phi(5^c)
(6) = 2^{a-1} * (2-1) * 3^{b-1} * (3-1) * 5^{c-1} * (5-1)
(7) = 2^{a-1} * 3^{b-1} * 2 * 5^{c-1} * 4
(8) = 2^{a+2} * 3^{b-1} * 5^{c-1}
And from (3) and (4) follows that if the totient of two primes p_1 and p_2 is a Hamming numbers each, then their product is a Hamming number as well:
(9) phi(p_1 p_2) = phi(p_1) * phi(p_2)
(10) = 2^{a_1} 3^{b_1} 5^{c_1} * 2^{a_2} 3^{b_2} 5^{c_2}
(11) = 2^{a_1 + a_2} 3^{b_1 + b_2} 5^{c_1 + c_2}
This applies not only to the product of two primes but also to the product of any number of (distinct) primes with a Hamming totient.
To avoid further confusion: let's assume that all those primes are bigger than 5.
Multiplying each such product by 2^k produces another Hamming number because:
(12) phi(2^k p_1 p_2) = phi(2^k) * phi(p) = 2^{k-1} * phi(p)
Multiplying each such product by 3^k produces another Hamming number because:
(13) phi(3^k p) = phi(3^k) * phi(p) = 3^{k-1} * 2 * phi(p)
Multiplying each such product by 5^k produces another Hamming number because:
(14) phi(5^k p) = phi(5^k) * phi(p) = 5^{k-1} * 2^2 * phi(p)
In general: since 2, 3 and 5 are coprime, multiplying each such product by 2^a 3^b 5^c produces another Hamming number (see (3) ).
The algorithm now looks as follows:
- find all Hamming numbers up to 10^12 and store them in
hamming
(3428 numbers) - find all prime numbers that are the successor of a Hamming number and store them in
primes
(545 numbers) - multiply all values of
primes
in every possible way, but each prime must appear at most once per product (and obviously the product must not exceed 10^12). - multiply each such product by all Hamming numbers (again: not exceeding 10^12)
Note
I wasn't sure whether I could have missed a few numbers whose totient is a Hamming number, too.
My program found the correct value for S(100) so I hoped for the best - and indeed, my result for S(10^12) was correct.
The main loop processes a queue of all prime number products.
Initially I was keen on keeping the queue sorted but soon discovered that it doesn't matter.
Even more, it doesn't matter which numbers you process first: processing the last (= largest) numbers first is faster and saves memory, too,
because the queue doesn't grow too much.
Almost all of my solutions which need a prime test either use a simple prime sieve or my implementation of the Miller-Rabin test.
Since the Miller-Rabin test is more than 100 lines long and not easily understandable, I often hesitate to include it.
This time I decided to give my wheel-based prime test a chance (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheel_factorization , it's part of my toolbox, too).
Interactive test
You can submit your own input to my program and it will be instantly processed at my server:
This is equivalent toecho 100 | ./516
Output:
Note: the original problem's input 1000000000000
cannot be entered
because just copying results is a soft skill reserved for idiots.
(this interactive test is still under development, computations will be aborted after one second)
