It is well known that Lebesgue's dominated convergence theorem does not hold for nets; that is, having a countable sequence is essential. On the other hand, for a real valued function on an interval, sequences do suffice; that is, lim_(x → y)f(x) = a iff lim_(n → ∞)f(x_n) = a for every sequence x_n → y. The purpose of this note is to isolate the basic reasons for these phenomena.
