#### Abstract

An ideal is a family of subsets of positive integers which is closed under taking finite unions and subsets of its elements. In this paper, we introduce a new definition of asymptotically ideal -statistical equivalent sequence in Wijsman sense and present some definitions which are the natural combination of the definition of asymptotic equivalence, statistical equivalent, -statistical equivalent sequences in Wijsman sense. Finally, we introduce the notion of Cesaro Orlicz asymptotically -equivalent sequences in Wijsman sense and establish their relationship with other classes.

#### 1. Preliminaries and Notations

Let us start with a basic definition from the literature. Let , the set of all natural numbers, and . Then, the *natural density* of is defined by if the limit exists, where the vertical bars indicate the number of elements in the enclosed set.

Fast [1] presented the following definition of statistical convergence for the sequences of real numbers. The sequence is said to be *statistically convergent* to if for every , the set has natural density zero, that is, for each ,
In this case, we write - or and denotes the set of all statistically convergent sequences. Note that every convergent sequence is statistically convergent but not conversely. In 1985, Fridy [2] presented the notion of statistically Cauchy sequence and determined that it is equivalent to statistical convergence. Some basic properties related to the concept of statistical convergence were studied in [3–5] where many important references can be found.

Kostyrko et al. [6] introduced the notion of -convergence with the help of an admissible ideal which denotes the ideal of subsets of , which is a generalization of statistical convergence. Quite recently, Das et al. [7] unified these two approaches to introduce new concepts such as-statistical convergence and -lacunary statistical convergence and investigated some of their consequences. For more applications of ideals we refer to [8–21] where many important references can be found.

A family of sets (power sets of ) is said to be an *ideal* if and only if (a),
(b)for each , we have ,(c)for each and each , we have .

A nonempty family of sets is said to be a *filter* on if and only if (a),
(b)for each , we have ,(c)for each and each , we have .

An ideal is called a nontrivial ideal if and . Clearly is a non-trivial ideal if and only if is a filter on .

A non-trivial ideal is called (a)*admissible* if and only if ,(b)*maximal* if there cannot exist any non-trivial ideal containing as a subset.

Recall that a sequence of points in is said to be -convergent to a real number if for every , (see [6]). In this case, we write .

Throughout the paper, we denote that is an admissible ideal of subsets of , unless otherwise stated.

Pobyvanets [22] introduced the concept of asymptotically regular matrices, which preserve the asymptotic equivalence of two nonnegative numbers sequences. Marouf [23] presented definitions for asymptotically equivalent and asymptotic regular matrices. Li [24] introduced the concept asymptotic equivalent sequences using summability. Patterson [25] extend these concepts by presenting an asymptotically statistical equivalent analog of these definitions and natural regularity conditions for nonnegative summability matrices. Patterson and Savaş [26] introduced the concept of an asymptotically lacunary statistical equivalent sequences of real numbers. Braha [27] presented the notion of -lacunary statistical equivalent real sequences. Savaş [28] introduced the concept of asymptotically lacunary statistical equivalent sequences via ideals. Kumar and Sharma [29] introduced the generalized equivalent sequences of real numbers using ideals and studied some basic properties of this notion.

The concept of the convergence of sequences of points has been extended by several authors to the convergence of sequences of sets. One of these extensions considered in this paper is the concept of Wijsman convergence. The concept of Wijsman statistical convergence which is the implementation of the concept of statistical convergence to sequences of sets is presented by Nuray and Rhoades [30]. Hazarika and Esi [31], introduced the concept of statistical almost -convergence of sequences of sets. For more works on convergence of sequences of sets, we refer to [32–38].

Now we recall the definitions that are being used throughout the paper.

#### 2. Wijsman Orlicz Asymptotically Ideal -Statistical Equivalent Sequences

In this section, we define the notion of Cesaro Orlicz asymptotically -statistical equivalent and Orlicz asymptotically ideal -statistical equivalent sequences in Wijsman sense and establish some interesting relationships between these notions.

Let denote the space whose elements are finite sets of distinct positive integers. Given any element of , we denote by the sequence such that for and otherwise. Further, that is, is the set of those whose support has cardinality at most , and we get
