Definition of asymptote. : a **straight line associated with a curve** such that as a point moves along an infinite branch of the curve the distance from the point to the line approaches zero and the slope of the curve at the point approaches the slope of the line.

**Asymptotes** are **used** in procedures of curve sketching. An **asymptote** serves as a guide line to show the behavior of the curve towards infinity. In order to get better approximations of the curve, curvilinear **asymptotes** have also been **used** although the term asymptotic curve seems to be preferred.

It is impossible for the graph of a function to intersect a vertical asymptote (or a vertical line in general) in more than one point. Moreover, if a function is continuous at each point where it is defined, it is impossible that its graph does intersect any vertical asymptote .
