Let \(u=(u_ n)\), \(n\in {\mathbb{N}}\), be a sequence over a finite alphabet A. Denote by p(n) the number of words of length n which appear in u. The paper discusses some solved and unsolved problems related to the growth of p(n), especially the cases \(p(n)=n+1\) (so-called Sturm sequences) and \(p(n)=2n+1\).
