    • Abstract

       

      We study some arithmetic properties of the Ramanujan function τ(n), such as the largest prime divisorP (τ(n)) and the number of distinct prime divisors ω (τ (n)) of τ(n) for various sequences ofn. In particular, we show thatP(τ(n)) ≥ (logn)33/31+o(1) for infinitely many n, and$$P(\tau )(p)\tau (p^2 )\tau (p^3 )) > (1 + o(1))\frac{{\log \log p\log \log \log p}}{{\log \log \log \log p}}$$ for every primep with τ(ρ) ≠ 0.
