*Vertical asymptote*
of the function
called the straight line parallel
y
axis that is closely appoached by a plane curve
. The distance between this straight line and the plane curve tends to zero as
x
tends to the infinity. The vertical asymptote equation has the form:

, where - some constant (finity number)

The vertical asymptote of the function exists if the value of one (or both) of the limits

or

is equal to .

It should be noted that the limits described above also used to test whether the point is the discontinuity point of the function . Hence, the vertical asymptotes should only be searched at the discontinuity points of the function.
