# Contiguous Subsequence

A Contiguous Subsequence is a subsequence (of a sequence) where sequence deletion operations are not allowed in between members of the original sequence.

**AKA:**Strict Subsequence, Sequence Segment.**Context:**- It can be a Maximal Contiguous Subsequence.
- It can range from being an Infinite Contiguous Subsequence (e.g. a line segment) to being a Finite Contiguous Subsequence (e.g. contiguous substring).
- It can range from being an Abstract Contiguous Subsequence to being a Contiguous Subsequence Structure (which cannot be infinitely long).

**Example(s):**- <2,3,4> from <1,2,3,4,5>.
- <...,1,2,3,4> from <...,1,2,3,4,5,...>
- a Real Number Interval, such as
`(0,1]`

.

**Counter-Example(s):**- any Noncontiguous Subsequence, such as:
`<2,4>`

from`<1,2,3,4,5,...>`

.

- any Noncontiguous Subsequence, such as:
**See:**Phrase, Interval.
