The iterated Carmichael lambda function
Suppose n satisfies an incarnation with M ≤ k(N − 1).
The iterated Carmichael lambda function
Secondly we can assume that n also satisfies an incarnation where k(N − 2) < M ≤ k(N − 1) since we can keep eliminating primes in the Li,2 , which decrease N by 1, but M by at most k .
The iterated Carmichael lambda function
If M is bounded between k(N − 2) and kN and the incarnation is minimal, we get that N is bounded by 2k since eliminating a prime in Li,2 can only shrink M by at most k − 1 since our incarnation is minimal.
The iterated Carmichael lambda function
Therefore n satisifies an incarnation where N and hence M are bounded functions of k.
