limits at infinity and global asymptotes 2 6 09
Limits at Infinity and Global Asymptotes (2/6/09)
  • By the “limit at infinity of a function f″ we mean what f ′s value gets near as the input x goes out the positive (+) or negative (-) horizontal axis.
  • We write limx   f (x ) or limx  - f (x ).
  • It’s possible that the answer can be a number, or be  or -, or not exist.
examples
Examples
  • limx   1/(x + 4) =
  • limx  x + 4 =
  • limx  -x + 4 =
  • limx   ex =
  • limx  - ex =
  • limx   (2x +3)/(x – 1) =
  • limx   arctan(x ) =

nonexistent limits at infinity
Nonexistent Limits at Infinity?
  • Is it possible for a function to have no limit (including not + nor -)?
  • If so, what is an example?
global asymptotes
Global Asymptotes
  • When limx   f (x ) is a finite number a, then the graph of f has a horizontal asymptote, the line y = a .
  • We can also call this a global asymptote since it describes the global (as opposed to local) behavior of f .
  • But global asymptotes need not be horizontal lines nor even straight lines!
examples1
Examples
  • f (x ) = x /(x – 2) has a horizontal global asymptote. What is it?
  • g (x ) = x2 / (x – 2) has a diagonal global asymptote. What is it?
  • h (x ) = x3 / (x – 2) has a parabolic global asymptote. What is it?
assignment
Assignment
  • Monday we will have Lab #2 on power functions, polynomial functions, rational functions, and local and global behavior.
  • Hand-in #1 is due at 4:45 on Tuesday.
  • For Wednesday, please read Section 2.6 through page 137 and do Exercises 1, 3, 9, 15, 19, 28, 31, 35, 39 and 43.
