Hi,
I'm trying to plot the Sin[1/x] curve with the curve being defined as
0 at 0 like this:
g3[x_] := Piecewise[{{Sin[1/x], x != 0} {0, x == 0}}]
Invoking Plot produced a flat graph; puzzled I asked for g3[0] and
got:
Power::infy Infinite expression 1/0 encountered >>
{
{Indeterminate, False True},
{0, \!\(\*
TagBox["True",
"PiecewiseDefault",
AutoDelete->False,
DeletionWarning->True]\)}
}
Hmmm... what's the trick here to stop Mathematica evaluating all the branches
of the piecewise fn? There's nothing in the documentation that I can
see to stop this in Piecewise... perhaps I need to use a different Mathematica
function?
Thanks,
David.
