Prev: Limits for periodic functionsNext: ROM for 50G From: Merciadri Luca on 6 Jun 2010 09:04 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Hi, One can define sin(z), z being a complex number. How can the HP50g compute the limit of sin(z) when z approaches the positive infinity? (I.e. what could I type to achieve this?) I can evidently compute limits for real-valued functions, with the HP50g, but I never tried (and I don't know how to do it) with complex functions.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that this is not z, but |z|, and for |(sin(z))/[(z^2 + a^2)^2]|. But if I take a correct limit (i.e. one which exists), how can I compute it with the 50g?> >> (I.e. what could I type to achieve this?)

If the limit exists at all, it will exist along every complex path from z = 0 to |z| = oo. So to start with try it along each of the paths from 0 towards oo along one of the axial directions of the complex plane: t, -t, i*t and -i*t as real t goes towards oo. For each of those, you can work out explicit real expressions for |(sin(z))/[(z^2 + a^2)^2]| If all 4 have limits and are equal then there may actually be a limit for arbitrary paths From: Merciadri Luca on 8 Jun 2010 07:44 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Virgil writes: > In article <87typf11fa.fsf(a)merciadriluca-station.MERCIADRILUCA>, > Merciadri Luca wrote: > >> -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- >> Hash: SHA1 >> >> Virgil writes: >> >> > In article <87k4qcb9cx.fsf(a)merciadriluca-station.MERCIADRILUCA>, >> > Merciadri Luca wrote: >> > >> >> -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- >> >> Hash: SHA1 >> >> >> >> Hi, >> >> >> >> One can define sin(z), z being a complex number.
