# Classification of discontinuities

I was reading something which I do not understand.

I saw a conclusion that says that for any function that has a removable discontinuity or jump discontinuity (step discontinuity) then the function has no Indefinite integral.

So I took a look at $\frac {1}{n}$

So as I saw the function suffer from jump discontinuity in $x = 0$.

But still as you can see it has Indefinite integral which is $\log(n)$.

So was something wrong in the statement I read or I misinterpreted the $\frac {1}{n}$ or the statement

The discontinuity at $x=0$ is not a jump discontinuity. A jump discontinuity must have both its left hand limit and its right hand limit be finite. – Ataraxia Aug 14 '13 at 8:56
$\log x$ is not an antiderivative of $1/x$ on any neighbourhood of $x=0$. – mrf Aug 14 '13 at 9:13

About your example the function $1/x$ does not have a jump discontinuity, but rather an infinity at $x = 0$ so it does not apply here.
The concept of an indefinite integral (anti-derivative) of $f(x)$ implicitly assumes that there is some interval in which we have a function $g(x)$ such that $g'(x) = f(x)$ on that interval. So strictly speaking when we talk about indefinite integral we should also take note of the interval in which it is valid. – Paramanand Singh Aug 14 '13 at 9:07
