/*
* Java program for liouville lambda function
* For any positive integer n, define λ(n) as the sum of the primitive nth roots of unity.
* It has values in {−1, 1} depending on the factorization of n into prime factors:
*   λ(n) = +1 if n is a positive integer with an even number of prime factors.
*   λ(n) = −1 if n is a positive integer with an odd number of prime factors.
