Consider a sequence of continuous real-valued functions of a real variable. The sequence converges pointwise on a set to a function if for each in , as . The limit is not guaranteed to be continuous; in this Demonstration the limit has a removable discontinuity. (To construct a limit that is discontinuous everywhere in , construct with spikes at all numbers that can be written in the form , where and are positive integers and .)
