Assumptions

  • Assumptions is an option for Integrate and other functions that specifies what assumptions be made about relations between parameters.
  • The default setting is Assumptions->{}.
  • Assumptions can be equalities and inequalities.
  • The assumption Im[ x ] == 0 can be used to specify that x should be treated as a real variable.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 3.5.8.
  • See also: GenerateConditions.
