Abstract: A simple necessary and sufficient condition is developed for a sequence $ \{ \theta (n)\} ,n = 0,1,2, \cdots $, of positive terms, to satisfy $ \theta (n) = R(n),n \geqq 0$, where $ R( \cdot )$ is a regularly varying function on $ [0,\infty )$. The condition (2.1), below, leads to a Karamata-type exponential representation for $ \theta (n)$. Various associated difficulties are also discussed. (The results are of relevance in connection with limit theorems in various branches of probability theory.)
