Formal definition of a limit
For any limit limxaf(x) = L, we can define:
ϵ > 0δ > 0, s.t. if 0<|xa|< δ, then |f(x)L|< ϵ
Limits to infinity
We can construct an argument similar to δϵ, for limits to infinity. The argument is as follows:
case 1:
lim
xaf(x) =
N > 0δ > 0, s.t. if 0<|xa|< δ, then f(x)> N.
where you start with f(x)> N, and work towards 0<|xa|< δ.
Note, if the limit is −∞, then use N < 0.
case 2:
lim
x→∞ f(x) = L
ϵ > 0M > 0s.t. if x > M, then |f(x)L|< ϵ
where you start with f|(x)L|< ϵ, and work towards M > 0.
Note, if approaching −∞, then use x < M and M < 0.
case 3:
lim
x→∞ f(x) =
N > 0M > 0, s.t. if x > M, then f(x)> N.
Note, if approaching −∞, then use x < M and M < 0— if the limit is −∞, then use N < 0.
Intermediate value theorem
If f(x)is continuous on [a, b], then for any y on that interval value, there must be x value that satisfies it.
