On the critical case of Okamoto's continuous non-differentiable functions


Search this article


In a recent paper in this Proceedings, H. Okamoto presented a parameterized family of continuous functions which contains Bourbaki's and Perkins's nowhere differentiable functions as well as the Cantor-Lebesgue singular function. He showed that the function changes it's differentiability from 'differentiable almost everywhere' to 'non-differentiable almost everywhere' at a certain parameter value. However, differentiability of the function at the critical parameter value remained unknown. For this problem, we prove that the function is non-differentiable almost everywhere at the critical case. © 2009 The Japan Academy.
