## Sequence

In mathematics, a **sequence** is an ordered list of objects (or events). Like a set, it contains members (also called *elements*, or *terms*). The number of ordered elements (possibly infinite) is called the *length* of the sequence. Unlike a set, order matters, and exactly the same elements can appear multiple times at different positions in the sequence. A sequence is a discrete function.

### Famous quotes containing the word sequence:

“Reminiscences, even extensive ones, do not always amount to an autobiography.... For autobiography has to do with time, with *sequence* and what makes up the continuous flow of life. Here, I am talking of a space, of moments and discontinuities. For even if months and years appear here, it is in the form they have in the moment of recollection. This strange form—it may be called fleeting or eternal—is in neither case the stuff that life is made of.”

—Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

“It isn’t that you subordinate your ideas to the force of the facts in autobiography but that you construct a *sequence* of stories to bind up the facts with a persuasive hypothesis that unravels your history’s meaning.”

—Philip Roth (b. 1933)

“We have defined a story as a narrative of events arranged in their time-*sequence*. A plot is also a narrative of events, the emphasis falling on causality. “The king died and then the queen died” is a story. “The king died, and then the queen died of grief” is a plot. The time *sequence* is preserved, but the sense of causality overshadows it.”

—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
