But for every n in {0,1,2,..., d}, Lim_(d-> oo) n/d = 0

So that if your f(n,d) is a function of d for fixed n, as you indicate,
Lim_(d-> oo) n/d = 0

For any fixed d, the range of n is from 0 to d.
For any fixed n, the range of d is from n upwards.
At least as you have defined your alleged function.

Another of Ross' fakes!
