Summary[edit]

Graph of Chebyshev function, with the leading terms subtracted, for values of n from 1 to 10 million. Note the remarkably chaotic, unpredictable movement of this function.

More precisely, this is a graph of

The green lines above and below provide a limit of . Note that the function occasionally exceeds this bound; a theorem stated by Erhard Schmidt in 1903 shows that, for any real, positive K, there are values of x such that

and

infinitely often.
