compute the limit of a rational function at a pole
a multivariate rational function
a list of assignments for the variables of f
The command RationalFunctionLimit(f,p) returns either undefined if the rational function f does not admit a finite limit at the point given by p, or the limit of f at p otherwise.
If p is a pole of f, that is, if p cancels the denominator of f, then it is assumed that p is an isolated pole of f, that is, f has no poles other than p in a neighborhood of p.
This command is part of the RegularChains[AlgebraicGeometryTools] package, so it can be used in the form RationalFunctionLimit(..) only after executing the command with(RegularChains[AlgebraicGeometryTools]). However, it can always be accessed through the long form of the command by using RegularChains[AlgebraicGeometryTools][RationalFunctionLimit](..).

The RegularChains[AlgebraicGeometryTools][RationalFunctionLimit] command was introduced in Maple 2020.
