Canuto, V., P.J. Adams, S.H. Hsieh, and E. Tsiang, 1976: Particle creation and Dirac's Large Numbers Hypothesis. Nature, 264, 485, doi:10.1038/264485a0.

In a recent paper Steigman claims to show that the creation of matter as postulated by Dirac is unnecessary. In particular he claims that a theory with a gravitational constant G varying as t-1 automatically implies that the number of nucleons within the horizon should increase as t2. If so, Dirac's hypothesis that N ∼ t2 must be due to spontaneous matter creation becomes unnecessary. We here show Steigman's claim to be incorrect.
