Definition (Convergence of a Sequence)


A sequence {an } is said to converge to the limit L if given any > 0, there
exists a positive integer N such that
|a n L| < for all n N .

A sequence that does not converge is said to diverge.


Notation:
lim a n = L , or a n L as n .

Remark
Intuitively, the limit of {an } is the unique value L that an approaches
as n .
