Initial Comment: Hi all, (C1) limit(x^(1/4), x, 0, minus); (D1) 0 With reals numbers, this answer is bad. In my classroom, we work with reals variables only and for my students, the domain of f(x) = x^(1/4) is [0, inf[ and limit(x^(1/4), x, 0, minus); don't exist. It would be interesting have a Maxima's option : « Calculate only with reals numbers ». Is it possible that Maxima give the good solution ?
