and when r > 4>l, the value is zero.    In no case can the value be infinite, from which we may infer that
c?r /            ?• dr
must be continuous throughout.
From these data we can determine the form of dPJdr, working backwards from the large value of r, where all derivatives vanish.

Finally      4r = 4^2^(r; 0--^—^    (r<2Z)
and vanishes, of course, when r > 4>l.
From (61), (62) we may verify Pearson's relation* fa (o ; 1) = </>3 (I ; 2).
[* This implies that Pearson's relation (p; 610) holds for three dimensions.   We have in fact, for flights in three dimensions,
