Example: Factor the polynomial .

This tells Mathematica TE to factor the expression .

In[3]:= Factor[x^6 - y^6]

Out[3]=

Mathematica TE can also do calculus. It can evaluate derivatives and integrals symbolically and find symbolic solutions to ordinary differential equations. It can derive and manipulate power series approximations, and find limits.

Example: Find a formula for the integral .

Here is the expression in Mathematica TE.

In[4]:= x^4 / (x^2 - 1)

Out[4]=

This tells Mathematica TE to integrate the previous expression. Mathematica TE finds an explicit formula for the integral.

In[5]:= Integrate[%, x]

Out[5]=
