What is the value of $\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} \frac {\sin \left(\frac 1x\right)}{x^\alpha}$?

Wolfram tells me that for any $\alpha \ge 1$ (I tried up to $\alpha = 10^8$). $$\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} \frac {\sin \left(\frac 1x\right)}{x^\alpha} < \infty$$ How can I show that this is true?  • It should be $\alpha<0$! – Mhenni Benghorbal Feb 15 '16 at 4:59
• There's no way this converges for $\alpha\geq 0$... – bartgol Feb 15 '16 at 5:00
• Look at the plot that wolframalpha makes. It clearly shows something fishy is going on around 0. If you try a small $\alpha$ (1 or 2) you clearly see the mess that is going on around 0... – bartgol Feb 15 '16 at 5:04
• I include the plot here too. It only shows the imaginary part. – Paichu Feb 15 '16 at 5:06

Function $\sin(1/x)$ is bounded as $x\rightarrow0$, while $x^{-\alpha} \rightarrow 0$ for $\alpha<0$. As a result, the limit of their product is $0$ as well.
• The limit in the question is for $x\to 0$... – bartgol Feb 15 '16 at 5:01
