What exactly is a Monotonic Sequence? Could someone give me an example of both a sequence that IS monotonic and one that ISN'T?

I am wondering what is the difference between "sticky" and "monotonic" ?

Then please define "sticky"! I have never seen that as a mathematics term.

By the way, some texts use the term "strictly monotone" to distinguish the case " " or " " from " " or " ".

Other texts use "monotone" only for " " or " " and use "non-decreasing" for " " and "non-increasing" for " ".
