Cauchy sequence

[kō·shē ′sē·kwəns]
(mathematics)
A sequence with the property that the difference between any two terms is arbitrarily small provided they are both sufficiently far out in the sequence; more precisely stated: a sequence {an } such that for every ε > 0 there is an integer N with the property that, if n and m are both greater than N, then | an-am | < ε.="" also="" known="" as="" fundamental="" sequence;="" regular="">

Cauchy sequence

(mathematics)
A sequence of elements from some vector space that converge and stay arbitrarily close to each other (using the norm definied for the space).

For more generality, we can replace the condition of closedness of T by the following condition: T is a nonempty subset of R such that every Cauchy sequence in T converges to a point of T with the possible exception of Cauchy sequences which converge to a finite infimum or finite supremum of t.
