    • Abstract


      In the large-$N_c$ limit of QCD, two-point functions of local operators become harmonic sums. I review some properties which follow from this fact and which are relevant for phenomenological applications. This has led us to consider a class of analytic number theory functions as toy models of large-$N_c$ QCD which also is discussed.
