Limits of a Function
How do you format limits of functions neatly in Latex?

Would appreciate help.

Dear Bernhard,

I shall give you an example. Click on the text below and the Latex code will appear.

$\lim_{x\rightarrow{a}}f(x)=g(x)$

Also please refer to http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...atex-site.html

Hope this will help you to understand.

"\lim_{x \to X} f(x)" will produce:

$\lim_{x \to X} f(x)$

You need to add \displaystyle so that the subscript shows under the lim sign.

$\displaystyle \lim_{n \to \infty} f_n(x)$
$\displaystyle \lim_{n \to \infty} f_n(x)$

Not with the MHF-LaTeX set up it defaults to displaystyle.
