\phi(N) doesn't make sense here. \phi(p,q), if you want to make it a function. \phi(p,q) = (p-1)(q-1) = pq - p - q + 1 =: f(pg) - g(p,q) + 1 f(x) = x g(p,q) := p + q

There is no way of writing g(p,q) as a function h(pq). It's only possible (and indeed, useful) if the taylor series of \phi(p,q) was something a sum of (pq)^n only. Sp, not like p^3q^2 or, in our case, p^1q^0. You can prove this by contradiction if you assume it is possible and know that the function is holomorphic on its natural range (Extend to real numbers for the proof).

Never mind, I'm retarded.
