Hi all,

Can anyone help me to understand the definition of a limit of a sequence. In notes and when reading about it on the internet, I always find for every ε > 0 ∃ n such that for every n ≥ N, mod(An - L) < ε.

My biggest problem is picturing this. I understand that epsilon is a value very close to the limit of the sequence but I don't understand how this all relates together to allow us to show that a sequence converges to its limit e.g. 1/n^1/2 -> 0.

Anybody able to explain this?

Thanks guys
