  • x > y yields True if x is determined to be greater than y.
  • > > yields True if the form a strictly decreasing sequence.
  • Greater gives True or False when its arguments are real numbers.
  • Greater does some simplification when its arguments are not numbers.
  • For exact numeric quantities, Greater internally uses numerical approximations to establish numerical ordering. This process can be affected by the setting of the global variable $MaxExtraPrecision.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.5.6.
  • See also: Less, Positive.
