Most of the sequences that we deal with will have a pattern and reasonably nice behavior. The pattern will come from a generating formula. The nice behavior will come in the form of “limiting behavior”.

If we know the function a(n), then we use the notation a n to stand for a n and we write one of n a , { } n a or { } n n 1 a = to stand for the sequence a 1 , a 2 , a 3 , . . . a n , a n+1 , . . . In an increasing sequence , the GLB is the first term, and if there is a limit, it is the LUB. In a
