**Rolle’s theorem**, in analysis, special case of the mean-value theorem of differential calculus. Rolle’s theorem states that if a function *f* is continuous on the closed interval [*a*, *b*] and differentiable on the open interval (*a*, *b*) such that *f*(*a*) = *f*(*b*), then *f*′(*x*) = 0 for some *x* with *a* ≤ *x* ≤ *b*. In other words, if a continuous curve passes through the same *y*-value (such as the *x*-axis) twice and has a unique tangent line (derivative) at every point of the interval, then somewhere between the endpoints it has a tangent parallel to the *x*-axis. The theorem was proved in 1691 by the French mathematician Michel Rolle, though it was stated without a modern formal proof in the 12th century by the Indian mathematician Bhaskara II. Other than being useful in proving the mean-value theorem, Rolle’s theorem is seldom used, since it establishes only the existence of a solution and not its value.
