Abstract Let t(e) (n) denote the number of e-squarefree e-divisor of n. The aim of the present
paper is to establish an asymptotic formula for the mean value of the function (t(e) )r , where
r ≥ 1 is a ﬁxed integer.
Keywords E-squarefree e-divisor function, the generalized divisor function, convolution
method.

§1. Introduction

An integer d = i=1 pbi is called an e-divisor of n = i=1 pai > 1 if bi |ai for every i ∈{1,
i                                       i
2, ..., s}, notation: d|e n. By convention 1|e 1. The integer n > 1 is called e-squarefree if all
exponents a1 , · · · as are squarefree. The integer 1 is also considered to be e-squarefree.
Consider now the esponential squarefree exponential divisor (e-squarefre e-divisor)of n.

Here d = i=1 pbi is an e-squarefree e-divisor of n = i=1 pai > 1, if b1 | a1 , · · · bs | as and
i                                              i
b1 , · · · bs are squarefree. Note that the integer 1 is e-squarefree but is not an e-divisor of n > 1.
Let t(e) (n) denote the number of e-squarefree e-divior of n. The function t(e) is called the
α1     αs
e-squarefre e-divisor function, which is multiplicative and if n = p1 · · · ps > 1, then (see [1])

t(e) (n) = 2ω(α1 ) · · · 2ω(αs ) ,

where ω(α) = s denotes the number of distinct prime factors of α.
