Second Order Critical Point

A point on the graph of a function at which the second derivative is either 0 or undefined. A second order critical point may or may not be an inflection point.

Note: The phrase second order critical point is NOT in common usage among mathematicians or in textbooks. Nevertheless, it is a useful name for a type of point which otherwise has no name.
