Limits of Sequences and Functions. Continuity in One and Several Variables

Limits

MATLAB incorporates features that allow you to work with limits of sequences and functions. In addition to calculating limits of sequences and functions, one can use these commands to analyze the continuity and differentiability of functions, as well as the convergence of numerical series and power series. The following table summarizes the most common MATLAB functions relating to limits.

limit (sequence, inf)

Calculates the limit of the sequence, indicated by its general term, as n tends to infinity

>> syms n>> limit(((2*n-3)/(3*n-7))^4, n,inf) ...
