Abstract

Our main reason for taking up limits is to prepare the way for derivatives in the next chapter. More generally, limits provide a framework for discussing ‘indeterminate forms’ ( 0/0, 0-, 0. ∞, etc.)p1. For example, in calculating the derivative of a function f at a point c, we look at the difference quotient
