Hi, consider the somewhat easier to interpret limit: Limit[(1/n (-1)^(1/n)) / (1+1/n (-1)^(1/n)),{n->0}] then Limit[(-1)^(1/n),n->0] has an absolute value of 1, provided we define the limiting process so that it converges. Therefore, the original limit should be considered as 1. Therefore, I think this is a bug you should report to Wolfram. regards, Daniel azzteke wrote: > In both V6 and V7 Limit[((-1)^n*n)/((-1)^n*n + 1), n -> Infinity] > gives 0 instead of 1. > Any idea? > > Thanks > Klaus >
