    Determines the left and right limits of a function at a given point.

    datatype_icon

    formula

    Function to calculate. The formula can contain any number of valid variables.

    Entering Valid Variables

    This node accepts variables that use the following format rule: variables must start with a letter or an underscore followed by any number of alphanumeric characters or underscores.

    datatype_icon

    point

    Point at which this node calculates limits.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    delta

    Distance to the left and right neighbor of point.

    delta is internally rounded to a power of 2. Take a value of delta = 1E-10 in all cases because a very small delta value can result in numerical inaccuracies.

    Default: 1E-10

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    left limit

    Left limit of the given function at point, which is the function value at point - delta. The accuracy is up to 8 decimal digits.

    datatype_icon

    right limit

    Right limit of the given function at point, which is the function value at point + delta. The accuracy is up to 8 decimal digits.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    The function f ( x ) = ( 1 + 1 x ) x has the limit e (Euler) as x tends to infinity.

    To find the limit of f(x) as x tends to infinity, you can instead find the limit of g(x) = f( 1 x ) as x tends to 0. With this in mind, you define g ( x ) = ( 1 + x ) 1 x and apply the Limit function to g(x) to obtain the limit value of e.

    Thus, enter the following values on the panel:

    formula: (1+x)^(1/x)

    point: 0

    The following graph shows the convergence of f(x) to e as x becomes greater.
