I have to find a reference on a book of the following fact:

a Lipschitz continuous function whose derivative is $0$ wherever it exists is constant on connected components of its domain

Does someone know some book where this statement is proved?

Thank You

Lipschitz functions are absolutely continuous, and many books prove the fundamental theorem of calculus for absolutely continuous functions, from which the result follows. A particular reference for this could be Chapter 7 of Rudin's Real and Complex Analysis.

The definition of "absolutely continuous" makes it clear that a Lipschitz function is absolutely continuous. Now the big theorem about absolutely continuous functions says qed.
