Limits - Please provide some good reading materials!

  1. Jul 25, 2007 #1
    Can anyone provide me with insights on limits?

    Like L' Hospital rule (don't know whether spelt right), and product rule such as [tex] lim_{x\rightarrow\a} [f(x)g(x)] = lim_{x\rightarrow\a} f(x) \cdot lim_{x\rightarrow\a} g(x) [/tex] should [tex] lim_{x\rightarrow\a} f(x) [/tex]and [tex]lim_{x\rightarrow\a} g(x) [/tex] exists.

    And oh, the product rule, which I'm pretty sure I read from some course notes, stating that only when [tex]lim_{x\rightarrow\a} g(x) [/tex] and [tex] lim_{x\rightarrow\a} f(x) [/tex] exists, what is the definition of existing? A finite value? Non-zero?

    Oh and could anyone provide me with some reading material on this topic?

    I couldn't see your LaTex graphics, but Calculus texts by James Stewart (of the University of Waterloo, I believe) have good (possibly the best) reputation as introductory calculus texts, so you might want to have a look at them.
