Undefined/No Limit

Is there any difference between a limit that is undefined and a "does not exist"?

From what I think,

Undefined means it approaches +/- infinity (asymptotes) or a cusp, etc.

Does not exist- RHS≠LHS

Is this correct?

No. "undefined" and "does not exist" mean exactly the same thing.

Going to +/- infinity is just particular ways in which a limit may not exit.

Ok, thanks for clarification.
