I'm trying to show that a sequence does not have a limit, so that would mean proving the negation of the limit definition is true, right? Is this a correct negation of the definition of what it means for a sequence to have a limit?

2. Relevant equations

The definition of the limit of a sequence [tex](x_n)[/tex].

The sequence [tex](x_n)[/tex] converges to [tex]L[/tex] if given [tex]\epsilon > 0[/tex], [tex]\exists K(e) \in \mathbb{N} \ni[/tex] if [tex]n > K(e)[/tex], then [tex]|x_n-L| < \epsilon[/tex].

3. The attempt at a solution

The limit of a sequence [tex](x_n)[/tex] is not L if [tex]\exists \epsilon > 0 \ni \forall K \in \mathbb{N}[/tex], [tex]\existsn \in \mathbb{N} \ni n > K \ni |x_n - L| \geq \epsilon[/tex].
