Recurrence properties of sequences of integers



In order to study the recurrence of sequences of integers, we investigate their L 2-exactness and Θ-Hartman property (Θ being a set of rational numbers). Two classes of sequences of integers are well studied, which are return times relative to a weakly mixing system and Bernoulli random sequences.
