Abstract

I AM grateful to Prof. Furry for his sympathy with the outlook of a mere physicist and for the light he has thrown upon this matter. Prof. E. M. Wright, some months ago, sent me privately a proof on somewhat similar lines that the probabilities could not be independent for primes greater than nO.76. Prof. Furry has carried the process a step further and shown the degree of divergence.
