Many limits, typically taught as examples of applying the ‘squeeze’ theorem, can be evaluated more easily using the proposed zero-bounded limit theorem. The theorem applies to functions defined as a product of a factor going to zero and a factor that remains bounded in some neighborhood of the limit. This technique is immensely useful for both single-variable limits and multidimensional limits. A comprehensive treatment of multidimensional limits and continuity is also outlined.
