    Absolute continuity

    How to prove that x^1/3 is absolutely continuous without using
    the fact that it is the integral of a derivative.

    I remember this being annoying to do. You know everything's fine on any union of intervals bounded away from zero, since x^{\frac{1}{3}} has bounded derivative, and thus is Lipschitz. Try then to take care of the case of finite intervals containing 0. Is this where you're stuck?

    Re: Absolute continuity

    I would like to prove that f is absolute continuous over the closed interval [-1,1] .
    Actually the derivative is unbounded there thus not Lipschitz.
    I am trying to use the definition.
