Abstract: Following the concept of a statistically convergent sequence , we define a statistical limit point of as a number that is the limit of a subsequence of such that the set does not have density zero. Similarly, a statistical cluster point of is a number such that for every the set does not have density zero. These concepts, which are not equivalent, are compared to the usual concept of limit point of a sequence. Statistical analogues of limit point results are obtained. For example, if is a bounded sequence then has a statistical cluster point but not necessarily a statistical limit point. Also, if the set has density one and is bounded on , then is statistically convergent.
