If a -periodic function which is integrable on the segment satisfies the condition

at a point for a fixed number , , and an arbitrary , then the Fourier series of at converges to . The criterion was proved by U. Dini [1]. It is a final (sharp) statement in the following sense. If is a continuous function such that the function is not integrable in a neighbourhood of the point , it is possible to find a continuous function whose Fourier series diverges at and such that

for small .
