The paper examines a macromolecule without volumetric interactions all the units of which are in parabolic potential wells of the kx2 type. The parameters k differ for the different units and their sequence is determined by primary structure of the heteropolymer. The authors make a full investigation of the properties of the globule for an arbitrary fixed primary structure. On this basis they study the probability characteristics of the thermodynamic functions of the statistical heteropolymer. The physical nature of the properties of self-averaging of the free energy is discussed.
