The law of large numbers for the empirical density for the pairs of uniformly distributed integers with a given greatest common divisor is a classic result in number theory. In this paper, we study the large deviations of the empirical density. We will also obtain a sharp rate of convergence to the normal distribution for the central limit theorem. Some generalizations are provided. this is joint work with Lingjiong Zhu.
