Event Title

Takagi’s Function: Past and Present Results

Description

Even though Takagi’s Function is nowhere differentiable, one can ask whether it has an improper infinite derivative at any point. In this presentation, Samansky will present the answer to this question, which was recently proved by Pieter C. Allaart and Kiko Kawamura, but has been worked on by several mathematicians over the past 80 years.
