# Question about spectrum versus spectral sequences

What is the difference between spectrum sequences and spectral sequences? Are they considered to be the same?

I know that the spectrum sequence of a real number $\alpha$ is the sequence that has $[n\alpha]$ as its $n^{th}$ term.

Can spectral sequences be defined the same way?

• This question appears to be off-topic because it is based on a coincidence of terminology, which in this case happens to be meaningless. – user64687 Sep 12 '14 at 13:45
• The previous (robo-added) comment comes across as snootier than I intended. Anyway, the point is that the two things really have nothing to do with each other; "spectral sequence" is a confusing name for a complicated algebraic gadget that has no relation to sequences in the real-analysis sense. – user64687 Sep 12 '14 at 13:47
