Definition
Let $T = \left({S, \tau}\right)$ be a topological space.
Let $H \subseteq S$.
Then $H$ is sequentially compact in $T$ if and only if every infinite sequence in $H$ has a subsequence which converges to a point in $S$.
Sequentially Compact in Itself
A subspace $H \subseteq S$ is sequentially compact in itself if and only if every infinite sequence in $H$ has a subsequence which converges to a point in $H$.
This is understood to mean that $H$ is sequentially compact when we consider it as a topological space with the induced topology of $T$.
