I was recently asked how to call a number sequence, and since I am not sure about naming conventions, I am grateful for any help.
There is a sequence of real numbers, where:
- the next element always equals the previous element, multiplied by 2
- 1 is included
A slice of this sequence will look like that: 0.0625, 0.125, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32.
Is there a well-known name for this sequence? I see powers of two, starting from 1, but is there a name like “integers” or “Fibonacci numbers”?
