Abstract

In this paper, we show the relation between the shifted sum of a number-theoretic error term and its continuous mean (integral). We shall obtain a certain expression of the shifted sum as a linear combination of the continuous mean with the Bernoulli polynomials as their coefficients. As an application of our theorem, we give better approximations of the continuous mean by a shifted sum.
