Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can derive a few properties of the limit inferior and limit superior of a sequence of sets but I have trouble in understanding what they actually mean. However, my understand of lim inf and lim sup of a sequence isn't all that bad. Is there a way to understand them intuitively (something like slope of the tangent line ~ derivative) ? Also, is there a connection between lim inf and lim sup of sequences of numbers with sequences of sets?

Thanks,

Madhav
