Distribution of Smooth Numbers
Is anyone aware of either Hildebrand's or Tenenbaum's work on the distribution of smooth numbers?
I have heard of their precise approximations for this distribution and thus was wondering if they were either in the form of papers and/or books? If the former, then please let me know of the title of the paper(s) (and if possible you can send me the electronic version of the paper(s) via email), and if the latter then please inform me of the title(s).

To be more precise, what is the best lowerbound on ?
Anyone? It's awfully quite on this thread

Not at all a trick question. Hopefully others will be able to contribute. If I find the answer myself, I shall post here.

Not being an expert on the topic, this looks like a good place to start (if not just to harvest references):

I thought it was rather quiet, both on the forum and on the roads. No rushhour traffic, even though most of the snow has now cleared from around here. Very strange. Paul Last fiddled with by xilman on 20091225 at 08:50 Reason: Fix tyop
