Core of a Sequence and the Matrix Class \((\ell , \ell )\)

  • P. N. NatarajanEmail author


In this chapter, we define the core of a sequence and prove an improvement of Sherbakhoff’s result, which gives rise to a short and elegant proof of Knopp’s core theorem . We also present some nice properties of the class \((\ell , \ell )\) of infinite matrices.
