# Algebra of N

Here we list (a part of) algebra of expressions that do not have a limit (not even infinity or minus infinity). We will use the symbol N for a limit that does not exist. In a Note at the end we will also briefly discuss some indeterminate expressions involving N. Some examples there are quite involved and interesting, so we look at them in Solved Problems.

Since this kind of considerations is done rarely, the necessary properties are usually worked out on the spot. We made a list here since we were curious and also for the sake of completeness, but since everybody seems to live happily without it, we took it as a good excuse for not listing all possible combinations (there is too many of them).

N±L = N for all real numbers L.
Indeterminate expressions: N±N and N±∞.

Multiplication/division:
NL = N and N/L = N for all non-zero L.
Indeterminate expressions: N⋅0, NN, 1/N, N/N, 0/N, N/0, N⋅∞, N/∞, ∞/N.

Powers:
AN = N for A > 0, A not equal to 1.
Indeterminate expressions: for instance NA, 1N, N, N.
