# Lacunary sequence

From Encyclopedia of Mathematics

A sequence of numbers such that ; this class of sequences is denoted by and is used, in particular, in the theory of lacunary series and in the theory of lacunary trigonometric series. There are generalizations of the class . For example, the class : if there is an such that the number of solutions of the equations ( and is the integer part of the number ) does not exceed for any integer ; the class : if there is an such that the number of solutions of the equations () does not exceed for any and any integer ; and the classes , , , consisting of sequences that split into finitely-many sequences of the classes , , , respectively.
