Numerical Functions

Throughout the Wolfram Language there is support not only for approximate real numbers, but also for exact numbers represented in algebraic or symbolic form. Functions like Floor, IntegerPart, and Max are all in effect set up to "prove theorems"often using original algorithms developed at Wolfram Researchto give values with exact inputs.


Round  ▪  Floor  ▪  Ceiling  ▪  IntegerPart  ▪  FractionalPart

Min, Max minimum, maximum of numbers or lists

Abs absolute value

Sign sign (, , )

Clip clip to between and or other limits

Rescale rescale to run between and

Chop chop small values to

Threshold set values in a list below a threshold to 0.
