THEOREM

OBJECTIVES:

define infinite limits;

illustrate the infinite limits ; and

use the theorems to evaluate the limits

of functions.

determine vertical and horizontal

asymptotes

define squeeze theorem

DEFINITION: INFINITE LIMITS

Sometimes one-sided or two-sided limits

fail to exist because the value of the

function increase or decrease without

1

bound.

For example, consider the behavior of

f ( x )

x

for

values of x near 0. It is evident from the

1

table and graph in Fig 1.1.15 that as x x f ( x )

from the right, the values of

1

are positive andf ( increase

x)

x

without bound;

and as

x-values are taken closer and closer to 0

In symbols, we write

lim and lim

Note:

The symbols and here are not

real numbers; they simply describe

particular ways in which the limits fail to

exist. Thus

it

is

0 incorrect to write

SQUEEZE

THEOREM

LIMITS OF FUNCTIONS USING THE

SQUEEZE PRINCIPLE

The Squeeze Principle is used on limit

problems where the usual algebraic methods

(factoring, conjugation, algebraic

manipulation, etc.) are not effective. However,

it requires that you be able to ``squeeze'' your

problem in between two other ``simpler''

functions whose limits are easily computable

and equal. The use of the Squeeze Principle

requires accurate analysis, algebra skills, and

careful use of inequalities. The method of

squeezing is used to prove that f(x)L as xc

by trapping or squeezing f between two

functions, g and h, whose limits as xc are

SQUEEZE

PRINCIPLE :

Assume that functions f , g , and h satisfy g(x) f(x) h(x)
