I have been playing with reduce now for a bit and I was puzzled by the inability of the limit function to get this limit and don't know if this is a bug or not: limit((x^2+5*x)/(exp(x)+x),x,infinity); while it gets limit((x^2+5*x)/(exp(x)),x,infinity); fine It must have very specific rules  certainly repeated application of L'hopitals rule would work here Bard Ermentout On Wed, Nov 13, 2013 at 10:48 PM, Bard Ermentrout <ermentrout@...>wrote: > I am not sure if this is the right place to send questions and I am sorry > if it is not. > How do I declare, say x and y to be real so that say, conj(x+i*y)=xi*y? > And how do I declare m to be an integer so int(sin(m*x),x,0,2*pi) =0 > > > >  > Bard >  Bard

I observe that limit(1/(e^x + 1), x, infinity) => 0 limit(x/(e^x + 1), x, infinity) => unsimplified limit(x/e^x, x, infinity) => 0 so there is a jolly project for somebody to trace through and see what it is doing there! I rather wonder if it is because e^x only goes to +infinity if you approach x=infinity eg along the positive real axis  otherwise you have an essential singularity there. And possibly the code that copes (sometimes) with essential singularities is being really cautious...???? I need to sleep right now rather than to dive into the code and see just what it is up to.

Only small corrections have been done to the limit module since its author, Stan Kameny, passed away. A lot of the code relies on being able to expand the expression in question into a power series around the limit point. This doesn't work for essential singularities. Indeed, the three limits here don't exist in the complex domain. For limits around infinity, the code tries to substitute x > 1/x^2 to transform to point 0. For x/(e^x + 1), this gives 1/(e^(1/x^2)*x^2+x^2) which is difficult to handle using L'Hopital's rule. Obviously, this needs a major review.
