# A report on Mathematical analysis, Calculus and Limit of a function

Analysis evolved from calculus, which involves the elementary concepts and techniques of analysis.

- Mathematical analysisIn mathematics, the limit of a function is a fundamental concept in calculus and analysis concerning the behavior of that function near a particular input.

- Limit of a functionIn mathematics education, calculus denotes courses of elementary mathematical analysis, which are mainly devoted to the study of functions and limits.

- CalculusThe last third of the century saw the arithmetization of analysis by Weierstrass, who thought that geometric reasoning was inherently misleading, and introduced the "epsilon-delta" definition of limit.

- Mathematical analysisIn his work Weierstrass formalized the concept of limit and eliminated infinitesimals (although his definition can actually validate nilsquare infinitesimals).

Function such that a continuous variation of the argument induces a continuous variation of the value of the function.

Continuity is one of the core concepts of calculus and mathematical analysis, where arguments and values of functions are real and complex numbers.

## Augustin-Louis Cauchy

0 linksBaron Augustin-Louis Cauchy (, ; ; 21 August 1789 – 23 May 1857) was a French mathematician, engineer, and physicist who made pioneering contributions to several branches of mathematics, including mathematical analysis and continuum mechanics.

He was one of the first to state and rigorously prove theorems of calculus, rejecting the heuristic principle of the generality of algebra of earlier authors.

In this book he gave the necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of a limit in the form that is still taught.
