# Applications of Differential Algebra to Algebraic Independence of Arithmetic Functions

## Wai Yan Pong

### California State University Dominguez Hills

We generalize and unify the proofs of several results of algebraic independence of arithmetic functions using a theorem of Ax on differential Schanuel conjecture. Along the way of we investigation, we found counter-examples to some results in the literature.
