Little derivative problem (prove or give a counterexample)
Hi guys, i'm trying to figure out if this is true or not, can you help me?
30+2=28 (Mom's identity)
Re: Little derivative problem (prove or give a counterexample)
Not true. ƒ may only be piecewise differentiable, not wholly differentiable.
where is chosen so that for continuity. Then if we make by piecing together the functions and their domains, this function satisfies all your given conditions but is not differentiable at any integer value of , where the gradient changes abruptly.
