Summary The major objective of the present paper is to generalize some of the results of Vervaat [12] and of the present author [1] and [6] in metric number theory by considering an algorithm which includes those investi- gated in the above papers. Though hints have been given for this more general expansion in the literature, metric results achieved their most gen- eral formulations in the quoted papers. Some of the results are new for the special cases of [1 ], [6] and [12], or even for the classical expansions of Engel, Sylvester and Cantor. 2. The algorithm Let xj (n) &#x3E; 0, j = 1, 2, ... be a sequence of strictly decreasing func- tions of natural numbers n and such that, for each j, 03B1j(1) = 1 and 03B1j(n)~ 0 as n - + oo . Let 03B3j(n) be another sequence of positive func- tions of n on which some further assumptions will be imposed in the sequel. Let 0 x 1 be an arbitrary real number and define the integers dj = dj(x) and the real numbers Xj by the algo
