Category: Lisp Core  Limit Group: None >Status: Closed >Resolution: Wont Fix Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: https://www.google.com/accounts () Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: Maxima can't evaluate limit(sin(n*x)/n,n,inf) Initial Comment: As in summary (%i1) limit(sin(n*x)/n,n,inf); sin(n x) (%o1) limit  n > inf n but it should be 0  >Comment By: Dieter Kaiser (crategus) Date: 20100821 15:34 Message: I would like to suggest to close this bug report as "won't fix". The limit of this example gives a noun form which is not wrong: (%i18) limit(sin(n*x)/n,n,inf); (%o18) 'limit(sin(n*x)/n,n,inf) With the help of exponentialize we get the expected limit: (%i19) limit(sin(n*x)/n,n,inf),exponentialize; (%o19) 0 Remark: This is correct only for x a real value. When we try to get the limit for a complex symbol z we get a Lisp break in tvarlim. But this should be a new bug report.
