# at_top filter and archimedean (semi)rings/fields #

In this file we prove that for a linear ordered archimedean semiring R and a function f : α → ℕ, the function coe ∘ f : α → R tends to at_top along a filter l if and only if so does f. We also prove that coe : ℕ → R tends to at_top along at_top, as well as version of these two results for ℤ (and a ring R) and ℚ (and a field R).

filter.tendsto (λ (x : α), r * f x) l filter.at_top

If a function tends to infinity along a filter, then this function multiplied by a positive constant (on the left) also tends to infinity. The archimedean assumption is convenient to get a statement that works on ℕ, ℤ and ℝ, although not necessary (a version in ordered fields is given in filter.tendsto.const_mul_at_top).
