This page has been identified as a candidate for refactoring of medium complexity.In particular: Into "Complex $p$-sequence space" and "Real ...", according to ADAUntil this has been finished, please leave
`{{Refactor}}` in the code.
Because of the underlying complexity of the work needed, it is recommended that you do not embark on a refactoring task until you have become familiar with the structural nature of pages of $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$.To discuss this page in more detail, feel free to use the talk page.When this work has been completed, you may remove this instance of `{{Refactor}}` from the code. |

## Definition

Let $p \in \R$, $p \ge 1$.

The **$p$-sequence space**, denoted $\ell^p$ or $\map {\ell^p} \N$, is defined as:

- $\ds \ell^p := \set {\sequence {z_n}_{n \mathop \in \N} \in \C^\N: \sum_{n \mathop = 0}^\infty \size {z_n}^p < \infty}$

As such, $\ell^p$ is a subspace of $\C^\N$, the space of all complex sequences.

This article is incomplete.You can help $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ by expanding it.To discuss this page in more detail, feel free to use the talk page.When this work has been completed, you may remove this instance of `{{Stub}}` from the code.If you would welcome a second opinion as to whether your work is correct, add a call to `{{Proofread}}` the page. |

## Also defined as

Authors coming from the direction of measure theory often define $\ell^p$ as consisting of real sequences.

To explicate the base field, $\ell^p_\R$ and $\ell^p_\C$ may be used.

## Also known as

Some authors call **sequence spaces** Lebesgue spaces, but this term is reserved for a more general object on $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$.
