Does this equation have a specific name or function?
- ?Lv 71 month ago
I've studied mathematics for a long time and the physical sciences along the way, and I haven't seen this function before. A Google search didn't return any results either, so I don't think it has a name. It's not defined for numbers between -1 and 0, so that makes me think it is unlikely to be a function that appears in the physical sciences. Such functions usually do not have a break in the domain like that.
