Title:
On the distribution of sum of the digits in base $q$

Abstract of Talk

Let $q\ge 2$ be an integer and let $s_q(n)$ denote the sum of the digits of the representation of an integer $n$ in base $q$. When $q=2$, the function $s_q(n)$ is the number of $1'$s in the binary representation of $n$. In this talk, I will give an overview of some results on the distribution of $s_q(n)$.
