We now claim that log [GAMMA](t + 1) -log 2 [less than or equal to] k log t for t [member of] [k + 1, k + 2] and k [greater than or equal to] 1.
Furthermore, -log P(t) + t log P(1) [greater than or equal to]log [GAMMA](t + 2) - t log 2 for t > 1 (by an argument as in Proposition 5.3) and we thus obtain, for a suitable constant C,
-log P(t) + t log P(1) [less than or equal to] -log [P.sub.a](t) + t log [P.sub.a] (1),
-log [P.sub.a](t) +t log [P.sub.a](1) = log[GAMMA] [P.sub.a](t + a) -log[GAMMA] (a) -t log a
where [eta](t) = 0 for a + k-1 [less than or equal to]t[less than or equal to] a + k and [eta](t) = -log 2 for a + k [less than or equal to]t[less than or equal to] a + k + 1 according to Lemma 5.1.
