Abstract: The condition $ f(x + 2h) - 2f(x + h) + f(x) = o(1)$ (as $ h \to 0$) at each x is equivalent to continuity for measurable functions. But there is a discontinuous function satisfying $ 2f(x + 2h) - f(x + h) - f(x) = o(1)$ at each x. The question of which generalized Riemann derivatives of order 0 characterize continuity is studied. In particular, a measurable function satisfying $ \sum\nolimits_{i = 1}^n {{\alpha _i}f(x + {\beta _i}h) \equiv 0} $ must be a polynomial. On the other hand, for any Riemann derivative of order 0 and any $ p \in [1,\infty ]$, generalized $ {L^p}$ continuity is equivalent to $ {L^p}$ continuity almost everywhere.
