#### Abstract

We introduced the ideal convergence of generalized difference sequence spaces combining an infinite matrix of complex numbers with respect to -sequences and the Musielak-Orlicz function over -normed spaces. We also studied some topological properties and inclusion relations between these spaces.

#### 1. Introduction

Throughout the paper,,,, anddenote the classes of all, bounded, convergent, null, and p-absolutely summable sequences of complex numbers. The sets of natural numbers and real numbers will be denoted by and , respectively. Many authors studied various sequence spaces using normed or seminormed linear spaces. In this paper, using an infinite matrix of complex numbers and the notion of ideal, we aimed to introduce some new sequence spaces with respect to generalized difference operatoron-sequences and the Musielak-Orlicz function in-normed linear spaces. By an ideal we mean a familyof subsets of a nonempty setsatisfying the following: (i); (ii)imply; (iii), imply, while an admissible idealoffurther satisfiesfor each. The notion of ideal convergence was introduced first by Kostyrko et al. [1] as a generalization of statistical convergence. The concept of 2-normed spaces was initially introduced by Gähler [2] in the 1960s, while that of-normed spaces can be found in [3]; this concept has been studied by many authors; see for instance [4–7]. The notion of ideal convergence in a 2-normed space was initially introduced by Gürdal [8]. Later on, it was extended to-normed spaces by Gürdal and Şahiner [9]. Given thatis a nontrivial ideal in , the sequencein a normed spaceis said to be-convergent to, if, for each,

A sequencein a normed spaceis said to be-bounded if there existssuch that

A sequencein a normed spaceis said to be-Cauchy if, for each, there exists a positive integersuch that

In paper [10], the notion of-convergent and bounded sequences is introduced as follows: letbe a strictly increasing sequence of positive real numbers tending to infinity; that is,

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

The class of all sequencessatisfying this property is denoted by.

In particular, we say that is a -null sequence ifas. Further, we say thatis -bounded if. Here and in the sequel, we will use the convention that any term with a zero subscript is equal to naught; for example,and. Now, it is well known [10] that ifin 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.

An Orlicz function is a functionwhich is continuous, nondecreasing, and convex with andforand, as. If convexity ofis replaced by, then it is called a modulus function, introduced by Nakano [11]. Ruckle [12] and Maddox [13] used the idea of a modulus function to construct some spaces of complex sequences. An Orlicz functionis said to satisfy the -condition for all values of, if there exists a constant, such that. The-condition is equivalent tofor all values ofand for. Lindentrauss and Tzafriri [14] used the idea of an Orlicz function to define the following sequence spaces: which is a Banach space with the Luxemburg norm defined by

The spaceis closely related to the space, which is an Orlicz sequence space withfor. Recently different classes of sequences have been introduced using Orlicz functions. See [7, 9, 15–17].

A sequenceof Orlicz functionsfor all is called a Musielak-Orlicz function.

Kizmaz [18] defined the difference sequences , , and as follows.

. For, , and , where, for all. The above spaces are Banach spaces, normed by. The notion of difference sequence spaces was generalized by Et and Colak [19] as follows:. For, and, where, and so that. Tripathy and Esi [20] introduced the following new type of difference sequence spaces.

Let and be nonnegative integers, then fora given sequence space we have where, for.

#### 2. Definitions and Preliminaries

Let andbe a linear space over the fieldof dimension, whereandis the field of real or complex numbers. A real valued function onsatisfies the following four conditions:(1)if and only ifare linearly dependent in;(2)is invariant under permutation;(3)for any;(4), which is called an-norm onand the pairis called an-normed space over the field. For example, we may takebeing equipped with the-normthe volume of the-dimensional parallelepiped spanned by the vectorswhich may be given explicitly by the formula where for each.

Letbe an-normed space of dimensionanda linearly independent set in. Then, the functionondefined by defines an -norm on with respect to and this is known as the derived -norm. The standard -norm on , a real inner product space of dimension , is as follows: where denotes the inner product on. If we take, then

For, this-norm is the usual norm.

#### 3. Main Results

In this section, we define some new ideal convergent sequence spaces and investigate their linear topological structures. We find out some relations related to these sequence spaces. Let be an admissible ideal of , a Musielak-Orlicz function, and the forward generalized difference operator on the class of all sequencessatisfying the propertyand an-normed space. Further, letbe any bounded sequence of positive real numbers; we will define the following sequence spaces:

Let us consider a few special cases of the aforementioned sets.
