We will ﬁrst give in Section 2 a simple bijection of the identity of Theorem 1 that gives several reﬁnements of the identity.

Figure 1 shows in its three parts the binned histogram N (h) in the scaled form N/Lz versus h/Lz , giving a good data collapse for large enough L; the three parts correspond to Lz /L = 0.1, 1 and 10 and for large L seem to give the same curve.
