Most frequently, one deals with multiplicative functions . These functions appear frequently in number theory, especially in analytic number theory. In this case, one sometimes also defines weak multiplicative functions: a function is weak multiplicative if and only if for all pairs of relatively prime integers .
Let and be multiplicative in the number theoretic sense ("weak multiplicative"). Then the function of defined by is also multiplicative. This article is a stub. Help us out by.
