Wolfram Language & System 10.0 (2014)|Legacy Documentation

This is documentation for an earlier version of the Wolfram Language.View current documentation (Version 11.2)


The Wolfram Language uses a large number of original algorithms to provide automatic systemwide support for inequalities and inequality constraints. Whereas equations can often be solved in terms of numbers, even representing solution sets for inequalities is only made possible by the Wolfram Language's symbolic capabilities.


Less(<)  ▪  Greater(>)  ▪  LessEqual(<=)  ▪  GreaterEqual(>=)  ▪  Equal(==)  ▪  Unequal(!=)  ▪  ...
