## 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:

“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)
