## Abstract

We introduce new sequence space defined by combining an Orlicz function, seminorms, and -sequences. We study its different properties and obtain some inclusion relation involving the space Inclusion relation between statistical convergent sequence spaces and Cesaro statistical convergent sequence spaces is also given.

## 1. Introduction

By , we denote the space of all real or complex valued sequences. If , then we simply write instead of . Also, we will use the conventions that . Any vector subspace of is called a sequence space. We will write , , and for the sequence spaces of all bounded, convergent, and null sequences, respectively. Further, by , we denote the sequence space of all -absolutely convergent series, that is, for . Throughout the article, , , and denote, respectively, the spaces of all, bounded, and -absolutely summable sequences with the elements in , where is a seminormed space. By , we denote the zero element in . denotes the set of all subsets of , that do not contain more than elements. With , we will denote a nondecreasing sequence of positive real numbers such that and , as . The class of all the sequences satisfying this property is denoted by .

In paper [1], the notion of -convergent and bounded sequences is introduced as follows: let be a strictly increasing sequence of positive reals tending to infinity, that is

We say that a sequence is -convergent to the number , called as the -limit of , if as , where

In particular, we say that is a -null sequence if as . Further, we say that is -bounded if . Here and in the sequel, we will use the convention that any term with a negative subscript is equal to naught, for example, and . Now, it is well known [1] that if in the ordinary sense of convergence, then

This implies that

which yields that and hence is -convergent to . We therefore deduce that the ordinary convergence implies the -convergence to the same limit.

## 2. Definitions and Background

The space introduced and studied by Sargent [2] is defined as follows:

Sargent [2] studied some of its properties and obtained its relationship with the space . Later on it was investigated from sequence space point of view by Rath [3], Rath and Tripathy [4], Tripathy and Sen [5], Tripathy and Mahanta [6], and others. Lindenstrauss and Tzafriri [7] used the idea of Orlicz function to define the following sequence spaces:

which is called an Orlicz sequence space. The space is a Banach space with the norm

The space is closely related to the space which is an Orlicz sequence space with . An Orlicz function is a function which is continuous, nondecreasing, and convex with , for and as . It is well known that if is a convex function and , then for all with .

An Orlicz function is said to satisfy the -condition for all values of , if there exists a constant such that (see, Krasnoselskii and Rutitsky [8]). In the later stage, different Orlicz sequence spaces were introduced and studied by Bhardwaj and Singh [9], GÃ¼ngÃ¶r et al. [10], Tripathy and Mahanta [6], Esi [11], Esi and Et [12], Parashar and Choudhary [13], and many others.

The following inequality will be used throughout the paper,

where and are complex numbers, and , . Tripathy and Mahanta [6] defined and studied the following sequence space. Let be an Orlicz function, then

Recently, Altun and Bilgin [14] defined and studied the following sequence spaces:

where and converges for each . In this paper, we will define the following sequence spaces:

## 4. Statistical Convergence

In [15], Fast introduced the idea of statistical convergence. This ideas was later studied by Connor [16], Freedman and Sember [17], and many others. A sequence of positive integers is called lacunary if , and as . A sequence is said to be statistically convergent to if for any ,

for some , where denotes the cardinality of . A sequence is said to be statistically convergent to if for any ,

for some .

Theorem 4.1.

Inclusion , is valid (from Theorem 4.1). In what follows, we will show converse inclusion. Let , since is bounded, there exists a constant such that . Then for every given , we have

Let us denote by , as we know this sequence is lacunary and finally we get the following relation:

where the summation is over and the summation is over . Taking the limit as and , it follows that .

## 5. Cesaro Convergence

In this paragraph, we will consider that is a nondecreasing sequence of positive real numbers such that , , as . Let us denote by

We can also find a constant such that

for all . Let be any integer with , for every . Then

from this, it follows that .

Theorem 5.3.

Let . Then for any Orlicz function, ,.
