The rational numbers a/q in [0, 1] can be counted by increasing height H(a/q) = max(a, q), or ordered as real numbers. Franel’s identity shows that the Riemann hypothesis is equivalent to a strong bound for a measure of the independence of these two orderings. We give a proof using Dedekind sums that allows weights w(q). Taking w(q) = χ(q) we find an extension to Dirichlet L-functions.
