# IsContinuousFunction

Determine whether a function is continuous

Contributed by: Wolfram|Alpha Math Team
 ResourceFunction["IsContinuousFunction"][expr,x,pt] assesses whether expr is continuous, viewed as a real-valued function of x, at the point x=pt. ResourceFunction["IsContinuousFunction"][expr,x] assesses whether expr is continuous over the full set of real numbers. ResourceFunction["IsContinuousFunction"][{expr,cond},x] assesses whether expr is continuous, subject to condition cond.

## Details and Options

A function is continuous at a point c if . The function f is continuous on if it is continuous at every point .

## Examples

### Basic Examples (2)

Test if a function is continuous over the Reals:

 In[1]:=
 Out[1]=

Test if a function is continuous at a point:

 In[2]:=
 Out[2]=
 In[3]:=
 Out[3]=

### Scope (2)

One can explicitly specify a domain over which to test continuity:

 In[4]:=
 Out[4]=

Omitting the condition on x produces a different result:

 In[5]:=
 Out[5]=

### Properties and Relations (1)

IsContinuousFunction uses the resource function FunctionDiscontinuities to determine the points of discontinuity of an expression:

 In[6]:=
 Out[6]=
