ExcludedForms

  • ExcludedForms is an option for FullSimplify which can be set to a list of patterns for expressions that should not be touched if they are encountered at intermediate steps in the operation of FullSimplify.
  • The default setting for ExcludedForms is { }.
  • A setting such as Gamma[_] will cause FullSimplify to treat gamma functions as elementary objects which should not be transformed.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 3.3.9.
  • See also: TimeConstraint, ComplexityFunction, Simplify, TrigFactor.
