1. Riemann’s example of function f for which exists for all x, but is not differentiable when x is a rational number with even denominator.

2. Riemann’s example of function f for which exists for all x, but is not differentiable when x is a rational number with even denominator. What does a derivative look like? Can we find a function that can’t be a derivative but which can be integrated? Does a derivative have to be continuous?

3. If F is differentiable at x = a, can F '(x) be discontinuous at x = a?

4. Yes! If F is differentiable at x = a, can F '(x) be discontinuous at x = a?

5. How discontinuous can a derivative be? Can it have jump discontinuities where the limits from left and right exist, but are not equal?

6. No! How discontinuous can a derivative be? Can it have jump discontinuities where the limits from left and right exist, but are not equal?

7. The derivative of a function cannot have any jump discontinuities!

9. Bernhard Riemann (1852, 1867) On the representation of a function as a trigonometric series Defined as limit of Key to convergence: on each interval, look at the variation of the function

10. Integral exists if and only if can be made as small as we wish by taking sufficiently small intervals. Bernhard Riemann (1852, 1867) On the representation of a function as a trigonometric series Defined as limit of Key to convergence: on each interval, look at the variation of the function

11. Any continuous function is integrable:

12. Bernhard Riemann (1852, 1867) On the representation of a function as a trigonometric series Riemann gave an example of a function that has a jump discontinuity in every subinterval of [0,1], but which can be integrated over the interval [0,1].
