Re: Limits


Try this:
<< NumericalMath`NLimit`
N[Limit[Exp[n]/n^3, n->Infinity]]

I think mathematica outputs the expression as it is if the limit value of
the expression is not finite. N prceeding the limit will force mathematica
to show numerical value. May be there is a better explanation to it that
experts can clarify!
