Iteration of the \(\varphi\)-function. (English) Zbl 0061.08003
The following is part of a joint review for six articles on the Euler \(\varphi\)-function:
By giving counter-examples the author refutes a conjecture of Shapiro that if \(k\) is given, the least \(n\) with \(C(n)=k\) is prime [see H. S. Shapiro, Am. Math. Mon. 50, 18–30 (1943; Zbl 0061.08002)].
