Lets say we have a sequence of reals. Is it always possible to change the order to that for all n [tex]a_{n+1} >= a_n[/tex]?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Or in other words,

Does there always exist a bijective function:

f:Z->Z (where Z is the set of positive natural numbers) so that for all n

[tex]a_{f(n+1)} >= a_{f(n)}[/tex]?
