I added the additional citations tag because there is a single citation to support the numerous claims made in the article. The article purports many mathematical statements to be true and first proved by so-and-so, without citing a single source for verification. So, methinks some more references are needed.
I also added the cleanup tag to the first section, because it is poorly written and ugly. The LaTeX math is improperly rendered, punctuation is omitted (or overused), etc. I'll clean up a bit of this myself, but more work will probably be needed. ----User:Khinchin's constant —Preceding undated comment added 00:41, 16 December 2009 (UTC).
Merten's function was computed up to 10^16 in 1996

- They didn't compute it "up to" 10^16. They computed isolated values and the largest was for 10^16. Mertens function#Calculation is for computations of all values up to the given limit. The 1996 work may be worth mentioning in the article anyway if the difference is explained. Feel free to do so.
