Definition

Let $\sequence {x_n}$ be a sequence in $\R$.


Then $\sequence {x_n}$ is strictly increasing if and only if:

$\forall n \in \N: x_n < x_{n + 1}$


Examples

Example: $\sequence {2^n}$

The first few terms of the real sequence:

$S = \sequence {2^n}_{n \mathop \ge 1}$

are:

$2, 4, 8, 16, \dotsc$


$S$ is strictly increasing.
