#### Abstract

In the present paper we introduced the ideal convergence of generalized difference sequence spaces combining de La Vallée-Poussin mean and Musielak-Orlicz function over *n*-normed spaces. We also study some topological properties and inclusion relation between these spaces.

#### 1. Introduction

Throughout the paper , , , , and denote 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 , , respectively. Many authors studied various sequence spaces using normed or seminormed linear spaces. In this paper, using de La Vallée-Poussin mean and the notion of ideal, we aimed to introduce some new sequence spaces with respect to generalized difference operator and Musielak-Orlicz function in -normed linear spaces. By an ideal we mean a family of subsets of a nonempty set satisfying (i) ; (ii) imply ; (iii) , imply , while an admissible ideal of further satisfies for 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], and this concept has been studied by many authors; see for instance [4–7]. The notion of ideal convergence in 2-normed space was initially introduced by Gürdal [8]. Later on, it was extended to -normed spaces by Gürdal and Şahiner [9]. Given is a nontrivial ideal in , the sequence in a normed space is said to be -convergent to , if for each ,

A sequence in a normed space is said to be -bounded if there exists such that

A sequence in a normed space is said to be -Cauchy if for each , there exists a positive integer such that

An Orlicz function is a function which is continuous, nondecreasing, and convex with , for and , as . If convexity of is replaced by , then it is called a modulus function, introduced by Nakano [10]. Ruckle [11] and Maddox [12] used the idea of a modulus function to construct some spaces of complex sequences. An Orlicz function is said to satisfy -condition for all values of , if there exists a constant , such that . The -condition is equivalent to for all values of and for . Lindenstrauss and Tzafriri [13] 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 space is closely related to the space , which is an Orlicz sequence space with for .

Recently different classes of sequences have been introduced using Orlicz functions. See [7, 9, 14–16].

A sequence of Orlicz functions for all is called a Musielak-Orlicz function, for a given Musielak-Orlicz function . Kızmaz [17] defined the difference sequence spaces , , 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 [18] as follows: , for , , and , where , and so that . Tripathy and Esi [19] introduced the following new type of difference sequence spaces.

, , , and , where , for all . Tripathy et al. [20] generalized the above notions and unified them as follows. Let , be nonnegative integers, then for a given sequence space we have where

Also let be nonnegative integers, then for a given sequence space we have where where , for

#### 2. Definitions and Preliminaries

Let and be a linear space over the field of dimension , where and is the field of real or complex numbers. A real valued function on satisfies the following four conditions:(1) if and only if are linearly dependent in ;(2) is invariant under permutation;(3) for any ;(4); is called an -norm on and the pair is called an -normed space over the field . For example, we may take being equipped with the -norm the volume of the -dimensional parallelepiped spanned by the vectors which may be given explicitly by the formula

where for each .

Let be an -normed space of dimension and a linearly independent set in . Then, the function on defined 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 .

*Definition 1. *A sequence in an -normed space is said to be convergent to if,

*Definition 2. *A sequence in an -normed space is called Cauchy (with respect to -norm) if,
If every Cauchy sequence in converges to an , then is said to be complete (with respect to the -norm). A complete -normed space is called -Banach space.

*Definition 3. *A sequence in an -normed space is said to be -convergent to with respect to -norm, if for each , the set

*Definition 4. *A sequence in an -normed space is said to be -Cauchy if for each , there exists a positive integer such that the set
Let be a sequence; then denotes the set of all permutations of the elements of ; that is, is a permutation of .

*Definition 5. *A sequence space is said to be symmetric if for all .

*Definition 6. *A sequence space is said to be normal (or solid) if , whenever and for all sequence of scalars with for all .

*Definition 7. *A sequence space is said to be a sequence algebra if then .

Lemma 8. *Every -normed space is an -normed space for all . In particular, every -normed space is a normed space. *

Lemma 9. *On a standard -normed space , the derived -norm defined with respect to the orthogonal set is equivalent to the standard -norm . To be precise, one has
**
for all , where .**Let be a nondecreasing sequence of positive real numbers tending to infinity and let and . In summability theory, de La Vallée-Poussin mean was first used to define the -summability by Leindler [21]. Also the -summable sequence spaces have been studied by many authors including [22, 23]. The generalized de La Vallée-Poussin’s mean of a sequence is defined as follows: , where for . We write**, ** for some ,**.**
For the sequence spaces that are strongly summable to zero, strongly summable and strongly bounded by the de La Vallée-Poussin's method, respectively. In the special case where for the spaces , , and reduce to the spaces , , and introduced by Maddox [24]. The following new paranormed sequence space is defined in [22].**. If one takes for all ; the space reduced to normed space defined by . The details of the sequence spaces mentioned above can be found in [23].**For any bounded sequence of positive numbers, one has the following well-known inequality.**If and , then , for all and . *

#### 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 , be a Musielak-Orlicz function, and an -normed space. Further, let be any bounded sequence of positive real numbers,

The above sequence spaces contain some unbounded sequences for . If , , for all and for all , then but .

Let us consider a few special cases of the above sets.(1)If = 2, = 1, and = , then the above classes of sequences are denoted by , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , and , , , , , respectively, which were defined and studied by Savaş [25].(2)If = , then the above classes of sequences are denoted by , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , and , , , , , respectively.(3)If , for all , then the above classes of sequences are denoted by , , , and , respectively.(4)If , for all , then we denote the above classes of sequences by , , , , , , , , , and , , , respectively.(5)If , , and for all , then the above classes of sequences are denoted by , , , and , respectively, which were defined and studied by Savaş [7].
