Abstract: Let $ {\sigma ^ \ast }(n)$ and $ {\varphi ^ \ast }(n)$ be the unitary analogues of $ \sigma (n)$ and $ \varphi (n)$ respectively. It is known that $ E(x) = \sum\nolimits_{n \leqq x} {{\sigma ^ \ast }} (n) - ({\pi ^2}{x^2}/12\zeta (3)) = O(x{\log ^2}x)$ and

$\displaystyle F(x) = \sum\limits_{n \leqq x} {{\varphi ^ \ast }(n) - \tfrac{1}{2}\alpha {x^2} = O(x{{\log }^2}x),} $

where $ \alpha $ is a positive constant. In this paper we improve the order estimates of $ E(x)$ and $ F(x)$ to $ E(x) = O(x{\log ^{5/3}}x)$ and

$\displaystyle F(x) = O(x{\log ^{5/3}}x{(\log \log x)^{4/3}}).$
