The rules derived from P (in vol
ii. [?] & summarised in vol iv) ap-
ply to all "figures" & index
alike: e.g. the relations of b,c,
z & x, and the rule of F are the
same always. Necessarily, no law
of reduction is applicable to P=
A general law of reduction was
found for Torsions wherein seq=n-1.
PerhapsA group with seq" n-2"
is impossible because n-1 & x-z
are primes (unless n=3 & then we
get back to I again.)
With 5, n-3=2, n-1=4 So
here a Group with seq. n-3 is possible.
But in no other possible case can
n-3 be a measure of n-1 (barring
4, & here we get back to I.)
With 7, n-4 is a factor of n-1
(3&6) but in no other case.
