# one-sided continuity

The real function $f$ is in the point  $x=x_{0}$  iff

 $\lim_{x\to x_{0}-}f(x)=f(x_{0}).$

The real function $f$ is continuous from the right in the point  $x=x_{0}$  iff

 $\lim_{x\to x_{0}+}f(x)=f(x_{0}).$

The real function $f$ is $[a,\,b]$  iff it is continuous at all points of the open interval$(a,\,b)$,  from the right continuous at $a$ and from the left continuous at $b$.

Examples.  The ceiling function $\lceil{x}\rceil$ is from the left continuous at each integer, the mantissa function $x\!-\!\lfloor{x}\rfloor$ is from the right continuous at each integer.
