°A restriction; a bound beyond which one may not go.
"There are several existing limits to executive power."
°A value to which a
sequence converges. Equivalently, the common value of the

lower limit of a sequence: if the upper and lower limits are different, then the sequence has no limit (i.e., does not converge).
"The sequence of reciprocals has zero as its limit."
