    Limit - asymptote

    Is asymptote the visualization of limit?

    Umm... I really don't understand what you're asking? Did you mean lines? Not limes like the fruit?

    My fault, in German/Latin limit means limes

    Since a curve approaches its asymptote in the limit, yes, you can think of that as a way of "visualizing" the limit.
