Sequences which are alternating of a (finite) higher order n, appropriately normalized, are shown to form a Bauer simplex, and its countably many extreme points are identified. For \(\, n = 2 \,\) we are dealing with increasing concave sequences. The proof makes use of multivariate co-survival functions of (not necessarily finite) Radon measures.
