### Discontinuous derivative. [duplicate]

Could someone give an example of a ‘very’ discontinuous derivative? I myself can only come up with examples where the derivative is discontinuous at only one point. I am assuming the function is real-...

### Is a differentiable function required to have at least one point where its derivative is continuous? [duplicate]

Let $f$ there be a real-valued differentiable function everywhere in the interval $]a,b[$. Does $\frac{df}{dx}$ need to be continuous somewhere in the interval $]a,b[$? Or can a differentiable ...

### Functions whose derivative is not continuous on a dense subset [duplicate]

Are there differentiable functions $F:(a,b)\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$, where the set of points at which the derivative of $F$ is discontinuous, is dense in $(a,b)$? So far I've only found functions ...

### How "ugly" can a derivative get? [duplicate]

There are plenty of examples of differentiable functions $\Bbb R\to\Bbb R$ with derivatives that are not everywhere continuous. However, as stated here, it is impossible for the derivative to be ...

### The continuity of the derivative of a differentiable function [duplicate]

Let $f:[a, b] \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ be a function that is differentiable everywhere. What can we say about the continuity of $f^{(1)}$? The only results that is related to this I that I can find is ...

### Differentiable function which is nowhere continuously differentiable [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate: How discontinuous can a derivative be? $x^2\cos(1/x)$ is the standard example for a differentiable function whose derivative is not continuous at $x=0$. But is there also a ...

### Cauchy sequences under derivative of a differentiable function [duplicate]

Suppose $f : \Bbb R → \Bbb R$ is differentiable on $\Bbb R$, and let $(x_n)$ be a Cauchy sequence. Is the sequence $(f′(x_n))$ also Cauchy? My first thought was to take $f(x)=\log x$, and $(x_n)=1/n$. ...

### Can we say anything about the set of all points of discontinuities of $f^{(1)}$,the derivative of a differentiable function on $\mathbb R$. [duplicate]

We all know that for a differentiable function $f$ on $\mathbb R$,its derivative function can have only essential or $2$nd kind discontinuity.Now my question is if $X$ be that set of all points of ...
### Continuity $\Rightarrow$ Intermediate Value Property. Why is the opposite not true?
Continuity $\Rightarrow$ Intermediate Value Property. Why is the opposite not true? It seems to me like they are equal definitions in a way. Can you give me a counter-example? Thanks
