Absolute Value and Continuity of Functions
Date: 09/15/2004 at 01:12:06 From: Myrtle Subject: (no subject) I know that the absolute value of a continuous function is also continuous. Is the opposite true? That is, if the absolute value of a function is continuous, is the function continuous? If not always true, can you give me a counter-example?
