The aim of this paper is to introduce and study some new double sequence spaces with respect to an Orlicz function, and also some properties of the resulting sequence spaces were examined.

1. Introduction

We recall that the concept of a 2-normed space was first given in the works of Gähler ([1, 2]) as an interesting nonlinear generalization of a normed linear space which was subsequently studied by many authors (see, [3, 4]). Recently, a lot of activities have started to study summability, sequence spaces, and related topics in these nonlinear spaces (see, e.g., [59]). In particular, Savaş [10] combined Orlicz function and ideal convergence to define some sequence spaces using 2-norm.

In this paper, we introduce and study some new double-sequence spaces, whose elements are form -normed spaces, using an Orlicz function, which may be considered as an extension of various sequence spaces to -normed spaces. We begin with recalling some notations and backgrounds.

Recall in [11] that an Orlicz function is continuous, convex, and nondecreasing function such that and for , and as .

Subsequently, Orlicz function was used to define sequence spaces by Parashar and Choudhary [12] and others. An Orlicz function can always be represented in the following integral form: , where is the known kernel of , right differential for , , for , is nondecreasing, and as .

If convexity of Orlicz function is replaced by , then this function is called Modulus function, which was presented and discussed by Ruckle [13] and Maddox [14].

Remark 1.1.

If is a convex function and , then for all with .

Let and be real vector space of dimension , where . An -norm on is a function which satisfies the following four conditions:

(i) if and only if are linearly dependent,

(ii) are invariant under permutation,

(iii) , ,

(iv) .

The pair is then called an -normed space [3].

Let be equipped with the -norm, then the volume of the -dimensional parallelepiped spanned by the vectors, which may be given explicitly by the formula
where denotes inner product. Let be an -normed space of dimension and a linearly independent set in . Then, the function on is defined by

is defines an norm on with respect to (see, [15]).

Definition 1.2 (see [7]).

A sequence in -normed space is aid to be convergent to an in (in the -norm) if

for every .

Definition 1.3 (see [16]).

Let be a linear space. Then, a map is called a paranorm (on ) if it is satisfies the following conditions for all and scalar:

(i)    ,

(ii) ,

(iii) ,

(iv) and imply .

2. Main Results

Let be any -normed space, and let denote -valued sequence spaces. Clearly is a linear space under addition and scalar multiplication.

Definition 2.1.

Let be an Orlicz function and any -normed space. Further, let be a bounded sequence of positive real numbers. Now, we define the following new double sequence space as follows:

The following inequalities will be used throughout the paper. Let be a double sequence of positive real numbers with , and let . Then, for the factorable sequences and in the complex plane, we have as in Maddox [16]

Theorem 2.2.

Definition 2.8 (see [10]).

Definition 2.9.

Theorem 2.10.

Definition 2.12 (see [18]).

Let denote a four-dimensional summability method that maps the complex double sequences into the double-sequence , where the th term to is as follows:

Such transformation is said to be nonnegative if is nonnegative for all , and .

Definition 2.13.

Let be a nonnegative matrix. Let be an Orlicz function and a factorable double sequence of strictly positive real numbers. Then, we define the following sequence spaces:

for each . If , then we say is summable to , where .

If we take and for all , then we have

This can be proved by using the techniques similar to those used in Theorem 2.2.

Theorem 2.15.

  1. (2)
    If , then
  1. (1)
    Let ; since , we have

  1. (2)

    Let for each and . Let .

Then, for each , there exists a positive integer such that
for all . This implies that

Thus, , and this completes the proof.
