If a Sequence has the property that the Block Growth function for all , then it is said to
have minimal block growth, and the sequence is called a Sturmian sequence. An example of this is the sequence arising
from the Substitution Map

yielding , which gives us the Sturmian sequence 01001010....

Sturm Functions are sometimes also said to form a Sturmian sequence.
