Singularity Functions Notice that the argument of a singularity function is enclosed by angle brackets ( i.e. , < >). The argument of a regular function continues to be enclosed by parentheses [ i.e. , ( )]. The rudiments of singularity functions include the following: ( ) if 0 and 0 nn xa n <−> = −≥ > 1 if 0 and 0 n n = 0 if 0 or 0 n n = −< 1 1 if 0 1 x d x n n + −∞ = + 1 if 0 x d x n + = 1 if 0 d n n dx = > 1 if 0 d n = The equations above imply that, in using singularity functions for beams, we take 0 for 0 bb = 0 0 for 0 = <
