In this video I give some examples for "singular" or "discontinuous" limits and explain why it is important to know what they are.

Corrections: The exponent at 1:45 should be 2 to the power of n, not 2 times n. The integral shown at 2:53 should have a "dt" at the end, not a "dx". At 4:53 that's not the dimension of the group, but the number of its elements. None of this is relevant to what I say, but sorry about those blunders anyway.
