#### Abstract

The aim of this paper is to give the sufficient conditions on the sequence space defined in Lim (1977) such that the class of all bounded linear operators between any arbitrary Banach spaces with *n*th approximation numbers of the bounded linear operators in form an operator ideal.

#### 1. Introduction

Most of the operator ideals in the class of Banach spaces or in the class of normed spaces in linear functional analysis are defined by different scalar sequence spaces. In [1], Pietsch studied the operator ideals generated by the approximation numbers and classical sequence space . In [2], Faried and bakery [3] have studied the ideal of all bounded linear operators between any arbitrary Banach spaces whose sequence of approximation numbers belonged to the generalized Cesáro sequence space and Orlicz sequence space , when , ; these results coincide with that known for the classical sequence space . Bakery [4] has studied the operator ideals generated by the approximation numbers and generalized de La Vallée Poussin’s mean defined by Şimşek et al. [5]; these results coincide with that known in [2] for the generalized Cesáro sequence space. By , we indicate the space of all bounded linear operators from a normed space into a normed space . The set of nonnegative integers is denoted by and the real numbers by . By , we denote the space of all real sequences. A map which assigns to every operator a unique sequence is called an -function and the number is called the th -numbers of if the following conditions are satisfied:(a), for all ,(b), for all ,(c), for all , , and , where and are normed spaces,(d), for all , ,(e), if , for all ,(f) where is the identity operator on the Euclidean space .As examples of -numbers, we mention that approximation numbers , Gelfand numbers , Kolmogorov numbers , and Tichomirov numbers are defined by(I),(II), where is a metric injection (a metric injection is a one to one operator with closed range and with norm equal to one) from the space into a higher space for a suitable index set ,(III),(IV).All these numbers satisfy the following condition:(g) for all .The operator ideal is a subclass of , where and are Banach spaces such that its components satisfy the following conditions:(i), where denotes the 1-dimensional Banach space, where ;(ii)if , then for any scalars ;(iii)if , , and , then ; see [1, 6, 7].By a lacunary sequence , where , we mean an increasing sequence of nonnegative integers with . The intervals determined by are denoted by . We write . The space of lacunary strongly convergent sequences was defined by Freedman and denoted by It is well known that there exists very close connection between the space of lacunary strongly convergent sequences and the space of strongly Cesaro summable sequences. This connection can be found in [8–10].

For a sequence of positive real numbers with , for all , the generalized Cesaro sequence space is defined by where .

The space is a Banach space with the norm .

If is bounded, we can simply write . Also, some geometric properties of have been studied in [11–13].

*Remarks.* (1) If , then we obtain the sequences space
studied in [12, 13].

(2) If and , for all , then we obtain the sequences space studied in [14].

The idea of the paper is the following. We proceed in the following way: given a scalar sequence space , a pair of Banach spaces and , the space of bounded operators , and the approximation -numbers , , and , we define the space . Then, we study the following two problems:

*Problem A (a linear problem)*. When (for which ) is an operator ideal.

*Problem B (topological problems)*. When the ideal of the finite range operators in the class of Banach spaces is dense in and completeness of the components of the ideal.

Throughout this paper, the sequence is a bounded sequence of positive real numbers with the following:(a1)the sequence of positive real numbers is increasing and bounded with and ,(a2)the sequence is a nondecreasing sequence of positive real numbers tending to , with .

Also, we define , where 1 appears at the th place for all .

Recently different classes of paranormed sequence spaces have been introduced and their different properties have been investigated by Et et al. [15], Tripathy and Dutta [16, 17], and Tripathy and Borgogain [18], and see also [19–23].

The following well-known inequality will be used throughout the paper. For any bounded sequence of positive numbers , and for all . See [24].
