Title: Various Problems on Sum of Digits
Abstract of Talk
The distribution of various arithmetic functions on positive integers written in a given base $g > 1$ is a classical area of investigation and a huge body of literature on this topic has been published. In this talk we look at various problems involving the sum of digits function, their help in proving a conjecture on the exponents in prime power factorization of factorials, and the sum of digits behavior under multiples.
