I’m currently working on some nice formulas that require l’Hopital’s Rule (sometimes written as l’Hospital (with the “s” silent. The “o” also goes with a “hat”) and came across a note from Professor Stephen A. Fulling, in which he mentions the never-ending zero-to-the zero power controversy.

Not even mathematicians agree on what the result should be. It has been argued that the answer is a matter of convenience, an element controversial -if not contrary- to Mathematics. What’s your take on the issue?

To learn more about the l’Hopital’s Rule and when it should be applied, see Wikipedia or WolframMathWorld.
