We compute the principal contribution to the index in the supersymmetric quantum mechanical systems which are obtained by reduction to 0 + 1 dimensions of script N = 1, D = 4, 6, 10 super-Yang-Mills theories with gauge group SU (N). The results are: 1/N2 for D = 4, 6, Σd\N 1/d2 for D = 10. We also discuss the D = 3 case.
