Definition

An arithmetic-geometric progression is a sequence $\left \langle{a_k}\right \rangle$ in $\R$ defined as:

$a_k = \left({a_0 + k d}\right) r^k$

for $k = 0, 1, 2, \ldots$


Thus its general form is:

$a_0, \left({a_0 + d}\right) r, \left({a_0 + 2 d}\right) r^2, \left({a_0 + 3 d}\right) r^3, \ldots$

Linguistic Note

In the context of an arithmetic progression or arithmetic-geometric progression, the word arithmetic is pronounced with the stress on the first and third syllables: a-rith-me-tic, rather than on the second syllable: a-rith-me-tic.

This is because the word is being used in its adjectival form.
