# Introduction to Limits

Introduction to Limits: Limits are fundamental concepts in mathematics that form the basis of calculus. They provide a precise way to describe the behavior of functions as they approach certain values. In essence, limits define the notion of approaching a value as closely as possible without actually reaching it. This concept is crucial for understanding continuity, derivatives, and integrals, which are essential tools in various fields such as physics, engineering, economics, and more. By exploring limits, mathematicians and scientists gain deeper insights into the behavior of functions and the underlying principles of change and continuity in the natural world.
