• In mathematics, a subsequence is a sequence that can be derived from another sequence by deleting some elements without changing the order of the remaining elements. For example, the sequence $\displaystyle{ \langle A,B,D \rangle }$ is a subsequence of $\displaystyle{ \langle A,B,C,D,E,F \rangle }$. They should not be confused with substring which is a refinement of subsequence.
