Limiting relationships and comparison theorems for sequences
- 26 Downloads
The aim of this paper is to define some mathematical concepts which are useful to measure the speed of convergence of a sequence and to compare two converging sequences. In that way we define the order, the relative order and the α-equivalence of sequences. The asymptotic expansion of a series is studied and an application to Aitken acceleration process is given. A theorem similar to l'Hospital's rule is also proved for sequences.
