student

 Limit
 inert form of limit

 Calling Sequence Limit(f, x = a) Limit(f, x = a, direction)

Parameters

 f - expression in x x - variable name a - the limiting value for x to approach direction - (optional) one of right, left, real, or complex

Description

 • Important: The student package has been deprecated. Use the superseding package Student instead.
 • This function corresponds to the limit of f as x approaches a. It is an unevaluated'' form of Maple's limit function so only minor simplifications are performed.  It can be manipulated by changevar and expand.
 • Use value to force evaluation by the limit function.
 • The command with(student,Limit) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.

Examples
