The derivative of ##|f(x)|## with respect to ##x## is ##f'(x)## for ##f(x) > 0## and ##-f'(x)## for ##f(x) < 0##. However, it is undefined wherever the value of the function is zero. I was wondering, though, if the product of this "undefined derivative" and zero is zero.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
