The theorem of Bolzano-Weierstrass motivates the following definition:

Definition: Accumulation Point (Real Numbers)

A real number \(a\) is called an accumulation point of a real sequence \((a_n)_{n\in\mathbb N}\), if it contains a subsequence \((a_{n_k})_{k\in\mathbb N}\) that is convergent to \(a\).
