Let \(f : \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}\). Let \(S\) be the set of all strict local maximum of \(f\). Can \(S\) be uncountable?

- A
**strict local maximum**is a value \(x\) such that there exists a neighborhood \(N_x\) of \(x\) where for all \(y \in N_x\), \(f(y) < f(x)\). A constant function has no strict local maximum, because \(f(y) \not< f(x)\); just being equal is not enough. - A set is
**uncountable**if there is no injection from it to the natural numbers. In other words, its elements cannot be listed exhaustively in a sequence \(a_1, a_2, a_3, \ldots\).
