Abstract
Let {a(n)} be the RudinShapiro sequence, and let s(n) = ∑a(k) and t(n) = ∑(1)k a(k). In this paper we show that the sequences {s(n)/√n} and {t(n)/√n} do not have cumulative distribution functions, but do have logarithmic distribution functions (given by a specific Lebesgue integral) at each point of the respective intervals [√3/5, √6] and [0, √3]. The functions a(x) and s(x) are also defined for real x ≥ 0, and the function [s(x) – a(x)]/√x is shown to have a Fourier expansion whose coefficients are related to the poles of the Dirichlet series ∑a(n)/n, where Re τ > ½.
