Calculus Cheat Sheet Visit http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu for a complete set of Calculus notes. © 2005 Paul Dawkins Limits Definitions Precise Definition : We say () lim xa fx L = if for every 0 ε > there is a 0 δ > such that whenever 0 <−< then −< . “Working” Definition : We say ( ) lim = if we can make fx as close to L as we want by taking x sufficiently close to a (on either side of a ) without letting x a = . Right hand limit : lim + = . This has the same definition as the limit except it requires x a > . Left hand limit : lim = . This has the same definition as the limit except it requires x a < . Limit at Infinity : We say lim x →∞ = if we can make ( ) as close to L as we want by taking x large enough and positive. There is a similar definition for ( ) lim x →−∞ = except we require x large and negative. Infinite Limit : We say lim =∞ if we can make ( ) arbitrarily large (and positive) by taking x sufficiently close to a (on either side of a ) without letting x a = . There is a similar definition for ( ) lim =−∞ except we make ( ) arbitrarily large and negative.
