On the Behavior of y Equals x to the n Power Times Sin 1/x.
Webster, Porter G.
Mathematics and Computer Education, v19 n1 p45-48 Win 1985
The behavior of some functions near the point of origin is discussed. Each function oscillates, and as x approaches 0, the oscillations become increasingly more rapid; their behavior near the origin improves with increasing values of n. Examples for a calculus class to consider are given. (MNS)
