Abstract : The subject of the mixtures of probability distributions has aroused a fresh interest in the fields of Probability and Statistics. The present report attempts to solve by using the methods of infinite matrices some of the problems of the identifiability of countable mixtures of discrete probability distributions. While most of the results discussed are beliefed to be new, a few of them can be shown to be immediate consequences of a powerful result due to Teicher obtained by using a different approach.
