Abstract: For a positive integer $ N$, let $ {X_N}$ be a random variable uniformly distributed over the set $ \{ \log d:d\vert N\} $. Let $ {F_N}$ be the normalized (to have expectation zero and variance one) distribution function for $ {X_N}$. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the convergence of a sequence $ {F_{{N_j}}}$ of distributions are given. The possible limit distributions are investigated, and the case where the limit distribution is normal is considered in detail.
