I have got a continuous and ntimes differentiable function f(s) defined on the interval (0,1/2) in which f(1/2)=0. f(0) and f’(1/2), which depend on the parameters’ sign, might be either sign, whilst f’’(1/2)=0. Questions: Is there any way to know if the function displays other zeros in the specified interval? If yes, is there any way to know how many those zeros are? Thanks to everybody. Best Regards, Francesco

What does "depend on the parameters’ sign" mean, and what does "might be either sign" mean?
