##### Abstract

Let φ (n) and λ(n) denote the Euler and Carmichael functions, respectively. In this paper, we investigate the equation φ (n)r = λ(n)s, where r ≥ s ≥ 1 are fixed positive integers. We also study those positive integers n, not equal to a prime or twice a prime, such that φ (n) = p−1 holds with some prime p, as well as those positive integers n such that the equation φ (n) = f(m) holds with some integer m,
where f is a fixed polynomial with integer coefficients and degree deg f > 1.
