Review:  Let 1 < a1 < a2 < ··· be a sequence of integers such that, for some \sigma, sumk = 1oo ak-\rho = 1 and sumk = 1oo log ak < oo, but not all ak are powers of a1. If l is a nonnegative integer and n is a positive integer, let Tl(n) be the coefficient of n in the Dirichlet series for (sumk = 1oo ak-\rho)l. Write f(n) = suml = 0oo Tl(n). It is proved in an elementary way that n-\rho summ = 1n f(m) has a positive limit as n ––> oo.
