Jump Discontinuity
Pronunciation: /dʒʌmp ˌdɪs kɒn tnˈu ɪ ti/ Explain

Figure 1: A function with a jump discontinuity at 1.


A jump discontinuity is a discontinuity
where the value of a
function
'jumps'. In more exact terms, a jump discontinuity occurs at a value
of the independent variable where the right hand limit and left hand
limit both exist, but these limits are not equal to each other.
