Riemann integration

Which of the following conditions are necessary for a function f to be Riemann integrable on the closed interval [a,b], where a < b?
I. f is bounded on [a,b].
II. f is continuous on [a,b].
III. f is differentiable on [a,b].


Solution Preview

The answer is A. None of them are necessary.
I. f is bounded on [a,b].
This is not necessary. Here is an example. f(x)=1/sqrt(|x|) on the ...
