In [[differential calculus]] and differential geometry, an '''inflection point''', '''point of inflection''', '''flex''', or '''inflection''' (British English: '''inflexion''') is a point on a [[plane curve#Smooth plane curve|smooth plane curve]] at which the [[signed curvature|curvature]] changes sign. In particular, in the case of the [[graph of a function]], it is a point where the function changes from being [[Concave function|concave]] (concave downward) to [[convex function|convex]] (concave upward), or vice versa.

For example, if the curve is the graph of a function {{math|1=''y'' = ''f''(''x'')}}, of [[differentiability class]] {{math|''C''<sup>2</sup>}}, an inflection point of the curve is where ''f<nowiki>''</nowiki>'', the [[second derivative]] of {{mvar|f}}, vanishes (''f<nowiki>''</nowiki> = 0'') and changes its sign at the point (from positive to negative or from negative to positive).<ref>{{Cite book|last=Stewart|first=James|title=Calculus|publisher=Cengage Learning|year=2015|isbn=978-1-285-74062-1|edition=8|location=Boston|pages=281}}</ref> A point where the second derivative vanishes but does not change its sign is sometimes called a '''point of undulation''' or '''undulation point'''.

For example, if the curve is the graph of a function , of differentiability class , an inflection point of the curve is where f<nowiki></nowiki>, the second derivative of , vanishes (f<nowiki></nowiki> = 0) and changes its sign at the point (from positive to negative or from negative to positive). A point where the second derivative vanishes but does not change its sign is sometimes called a point of undulation or undulation point.
