To develop calculus for functions of one variable, we needed to make sense of the concept of a limit, which we needed to understand continuous functions and to define the derivative.
In mathematics , the limit of a function is a fundamental concept in calculus and analysis concerning the behavior of that function near a particular input. Formal definitions, first devised in the early 19th century, are given below.
Continuity and Limits
To develop calculus for functions of one variable, we needed to make sense of the concept of a limit, which we needed to understand continuous functions and to define the derivative. Limits involving functions of two variables can be considerably more difficult to deal with; fortunately, most of the functions we encounter are fairly easy to understand.
Sadly, no. Example Looking at figure Fortunately, we can define the concept of limit without needing to specify how a particular point is approached—indeed, in definition 2. We can adapt that definition to two variables quite easily:. Definition We can say exactly the same thing about a function of two variables.
This surface is shown in figure Note that in contrast to this example we cannot fix example Fortunately, the functions we will examine will typically be continuous almost everywhere. Usually this follows easily from the fact that closely related functions of one variable are continuous. As with single variable functions, two classes of common functions are particularly useful and easy to describe.
A rational function is a quotient of polynomials. Theorem Rational functions are continuous everywhere they are defined.
Determine whether each limit exists. If it does, find the limit and prove that it is the limit; if it does not, explain how you know. Ex Collapse menu 1 Analytic Geometry 1. Lines 2. Distance Between Two Points; Circles 3. Functions 4. The slope of a function 2.

Unit: Limits and continuity
Note that some sections will have more problems than others and some will have more or less of a variety of problems. Most sections should have a range of difficulty levels in the problems although this will vary from section to section. Here is a list of all the sections for which practice problems have been written as well as a brief description of the material covered in the notes for that particular section. Tangent Lines and Rates of Change —In this section we will introduce two problems that we will see time and again in this course : Rate of Change of a function and Tangent Lines to functions. Both of these problems will be used to introduce the concept of limits, although we won't formally give the definition or notation until the next section.
However, in calculus we also study and evaluate limits w. Such limits are known as One-sided limits. As regards the evaluation of one-sided limits, you do not need to be confused about them. All the theorems and solution techniques of limits discussed above are equally applicable for the evaluation of one-sided limits. We discuss it next. There are three conditions that need to be met by a function f in order to be continuous at a number a. These are:.

Limit of a function
The concept of the limit is one of the most crucial things to understand in order to prepare for calculus. A limit is a number that a function approaches as the independent variable of the function approaches a given value. In the following sections, we will more carefully define a limit, as well as give examples of limits of functions to help clarify the concept. Continuity is another far-reaching concept in calculus. A function can either be continuous or discontinuous.
In mathematics , a limit is the value that a function or sequence "approaches" as the input or index "approaches" some value. The concept of a limit of a sequence is further generalized to the concept of a limit of a topological net , and is closely related to limit and direct limit in category theory. Suppose f is a real-valued function and c is a real number. Intuitively speaking, the expression. Indeed, the function f need not even be defined at c.
