We have that {g([a.sub.n])} is a strictly decreasing sequence in [sigma](z).
which implies that [mathematical expression not reproducible] is decreasing sequence in [0, [infinity]) and hence it is convergent.
Decreasing sequences of rectangles are defined analogously.
According to step 5, if decreasing sequence (l) of a channel is greater than or equals to the [l.sub.0], it will proceed to step 6, i.e., the switching metric module.
Both [s.sub.n] = [(1 + (1/n)).sup.n+[alpha]] and [t.sub.n] = [(1 + (1/n)).sup.n+1] (1 + ([alpha]/n)) are monotone decreasing sequences if and only if [alpha] [greater than or equal to] (1/2).

Since (x,y) [member of] [X.sub.[less than or equal to]], (Tx,Ty) [member of] [X.sub.[less than or equal to]] and so {d([T.sup.2n]x, [T.sup.2n]y)} is a decreasing sequence and d([T.sup.2n]x, [T.sup.2n]y) [down arrow] d([x.sup.*], [Tx.sup.*]).
