In this note, we show that if b > 1 is an integer, f(X) ∈ Q[X] is an integer valued quadratic polynomial and K > 0 is any constant, then the b-adic number ∑n≥0 (an / bf(n)), where an ∈ Z and 1 ≤ |an| ≤ K for all n ≥ 0, is neither rational nor quadratic.

A characterization of some additive arithmetical functions, III

Jean-Loup Mauclaire (1999)

Acta Arithmetica

I. Introduction. In 1946, P. Erdős [2] proved that if a real-valued additive arithmetical function f satisfies the condition: f(n+1) - f(n) → 0, n → ∞, then there exists a constant C such that f(n) = C log n for all n in ℕ*. Later, I. Kátai [3,4] was led to conjecture that it was possible to determine additive arithmetical functions f and g satisfying the condition: there exist a real number l, a, c in ℕ*, and integers b, d such that f(an+b) - g(cn+d) → l, n → ∞. This problem has been treated...
