Let me explain. If you go from 1 to 2 or 2 to 4, etc, that is called doubling. 3 to 9, 4 to 12, tripling (or trebling). And so on. But is there a special term to describe the discrete step from 0 to 1? I'm thinking about only non-negative integers here - 0, 1, 2, 3.... and am assuming the series begins with 0 and is simply looking to count the number of something.
