In geometry, a line associated with a curve in such a way that the distance between the line and the curve approaches zero as both reach toward infinity. Asymptotes are used in calculus and are computed using limits.

Given that (a) the formulation of the asymptotic standard error of y in equation (6) is realistic, relevant, and indeed correct; (b) the practical significance of including B can only be conclusively evaluated in the context of each particular empirical application after it has been estimated; and (c) the calculation of B imposes only minimal marginal computational burden, there remains no reasonable justification for excluding it from equation (6) as Dowd, Greene, and Norton (2014) recommend in their equation (18).
