Hello , Do you know examples of functions belonging crowds O(sin (n)), ? (sin (n)), ? (sin (n)) ?

or maybe the same but only for large enough N. So with either of those definitions, there are no functions in O(sin n), since sin n < 0 for arbitrarily large n. Using the equivalent definition for ? with it's easy to see that (among others) all functions bounded below by a positive constant are in ?(sin n). The usual definition of ?(g(n)) is usually just the intersection of ?(g(n)) and O(g(n)), right? So in that case there would be no functions in ?(g(n)). For weird cases like this, though, it's going to come down to the definitions. There are lots of definitions that are all the same for the usual functions, but differ on pathological examples.
