:I am trying to use Mma to solve a model where the system behaves a
:certain way up to a point, and an entirely different way after that
:point. The result is something like:
:This part I can get to work no problem. For part of my analysis, I would
:like to take the derivative of the function, but all I get is an identity

oddly, I just ran into the same need.
of course,


not knowing which piece of f to apply..can only return:



D[f[x],x] /. x-> 0



where it seems it could just return 0..

i'm stumped..
