(If there is no Coulomb interaction, we have infinitely discretely degenerate Landau levels.) The size (spread) of the clusters scales as [square root of [lambda]] with the magnetic field strength [lambda] = B/[B.sub.0], where [B.sub.0] = 2.3506 x [10.sup.9] Gauss, and the levels in the cluster for fixed [lambda] approach the accumulation point (=Landau level) as 1/ [square root of |m|] when the modulus |m| of the canonical angular momentum quantum number (m = 0, [+ or -] 1, [+ or -] 2 ....) goes to infinity (and the electron is receding to infinity).
