Normal

FilledSmallSquare Normal[expr] converts expr to a normal expression, from a variety of special forms.

FilledSmallSquare Normal[expr] converts a power series to a normal expression by truncating higher-order terms.

FilledSmallSquare Normal[expr] converts SparseArray objects into ordinary arrays.

FilledSmallSquare Normal[expr] converts RootSum objects into explicit sums involving Root objects.

FilledSmallSquare When additional "data types" are introduced, Normal should be defined to convert them, when possible, to normal expressions.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 1.5.10, Section 2.4.5, Section 3.4.3 and Section 3.6.5.

FilledSmallSquare See also: SeriesCoefficient.

FilledSmallSquare New in Version 1.0; modified in 5.0.
