Infinite set theory has any place in finding limits

    Hi...I'm wondering if infinite set theory has any place in finding limits. Is there any way that tabling elements of sets can find you the answer to a limit question?

    In set theory by itself, there is no such thing as "limit". For the concept of "limit" to have any meaning, there has to be a topology defined for the sets.
