# The distribution of spacings of real‐valued lacunary sequences modulo one

Let (an)n=1∞$(a_{n})_{n=1}^{\infty }$ be a lacunary sequence of positive real numbers. Rudnick and Technau showed that for almost all α∈R$\alpha \in \mathbb {R}$ , the pair correlation of (αan)n=1∞$(\alpha a_{n})_{n=1}^{\infty }$ mod 1 is Poissonian. We show that all higher correlations and hence the nearest‐neighbour spacing distribution are Poissonian as well, thereby extending a result of Rudnick and Zaharescu to real‐valued sequences.
