A subsequence is a subset of a sequence that retains their order.

    • 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 [math] \langle A,B,D \rangle [/math] is a subsequence of [math] \langle A,B,C,D,E,F \rangle [/math]. They should not be confused with substring which is a refinement of subsequence.
