For a value
(the limit from the left) and
(the limit from the right).
, the function is continuous at
, the function has a removable discontinuity at
, and both values are finite, the function has a jump discontinuity at
, and one or both values is infinite, the function has an infinite discontinuity at
. This is also called an essential discontinuity.
