A real-valued Lipschitz function on the unit interval is constructed such that

holds for every formula10. Here formula12 measures the distance of f to the best approximating linear functions at scale formula16 around x.

This problem is linked to the ongoing efforts to provide geometric understanding for J. Bourgain's results that there exist points formula20 at which bounded harmonic functions have finite radial variation.
