Or basically just google "finite sequence".
Here is a blog by Terrence Tao who uses the term: http://terrytao.wordpress.com/2007/0...nceprinciple/

The wording in post #1 is unclear on this point, and muddied, rather than clarified, by crossed wires in later responses, but I think we are at the point where OP can be encouraged to confirm or deny the interpretation unambiguously. I submit: further discussion is pointless until that happens.

From post #20:
The confusion still continued though: witness the remaining posts. I agree the thread is finished with no further input from OP.
