There's a "theorem" in my book that says if x is a cluster point of {x_n}, then lim inf(x_n)[itex]\leq[/itex]x[itex]\leq[/itex]lim sup(x_n).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The way the author proves it is a little bit extravagant. Why not just say "Let A be the set of all cluster points. Then, lim inf(x_n)=inf(A)[itex]\leq[/itex]x[itex]\leq[/itex]sup(A)=lim sup(x_n)."
