If your function is "nice enough", you can try to take the limit one at a time. In general, the limit may not exist.

```
sage: f(x,y) = x^2 + y^2
sage: f.limit(x=0).limit(y=0)
(x, y) |--> 0
sage: f.limit(x=0).limit(y=2)
(x, y) |--> 4
```

Why is Sage calling 1 a variable?

Problem evaluating limit: assume doesn't work!

How I can evaluate the limit superior of a sequence?
