A matrix summation method of sequences. It is defined by a numerical sequence $\{p_n\}$ and denoted by the symbol $(W,p_n)$. A sequence $\{s_n\}$ is summable by the method $(W,p_n)$ to a number $S$ if

$$\frac{s_0p_n+s_1p_{n-1}+\dotsb+s_np_0}{p_0+\dotsb+p_n}\to S$$

In particular, if $p_0=1$, $p_k=0$, $k\geq1$, the summability of a sequence by the $(W,p_n)$-method to a number $S$ means that the sequence converges to $S$. For $p_k=1$, $k\geq0$, one obtains the Cesàro summation method (cf. Cesàro summation methods). For $p_0>0$, $p_k\geq1$, $k\geq1$, the $(W,p_n)$-method is regular (cf. Regular summation methods) if and only if $p_n/(p_0+\dotsb+p_n)\to0$. Any two regular methods $(W,p_n')$ and $(W,p_n'')$ are compatible (cf. Compatibility of summation methods).

The Voronoi summation method was first introduced by G.F. Voronoi  and was rediscovered by N.E. Nörlund in 1919. The method is therefore sometimes referred to in western literature as the Nörlund method and the symbol given to it is $(N,p_n)$ or $N(p_n)$.
