$\lim\limits_{x\to\infty } \frac{\ln x}{\sqrt{x}\,{\sin{x}}}$

What a weird function.

I tried to find out: $$\lim_{x\to\infty } \frac{\ln x}{\sqrt{x}\,{\sin{x}}}$$

So, I can't use L'Hopital 'cause there's no actual limit in the denominator. It doesn't exist.

Then, I tried to use Heine's theorem and chose two sequences, but yet I got the same limit.

I believe it does not converge. How can I prove it?

Thanks

You can consider a sequence $x_n = \pi n - 2^{-n}$. On this sequence your function will become unbounded while this sequence goes to infinity. Hence the limit does not exist.
• In more informal terms: the funcion goes to (plus/minus) infinity at $\pi, 2 \pi, 3\pi \cdots$ . Hence, it cannot have a limit. – leonbloy Jun 22 '11 at 18:14
The limit doesn't exists, since the denominator has infinitely many zeros so you cannot find an N such that for $x\ge N$, $f$ is well-defined.
• For the limit to exist, it's not necessary for $f$ to be defined for all $x$ beyond some point. For example, if $f=1$ everywhere except that $f$ is undefined for all integers, then $\lim_{x\to\infty} f(x)=1$ (according to the definition of limit in Rudin's Principles (Def. 4.33), for example). – Hans Lundmark Jun 22 '11 at 21:14
• @Hans Lundmark if you consult with Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limit_of_a_function then it is required that $f$ to be defined for all $x$ beyond some point. Anyway, different definitions. – user5644 Jun 23 '11 at 14:15
