ExcludedForms

FilledSmallSquare 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.

FilledSmallSquare The default setting for ExcludedForms is { }.

FilledSmallSquare A setting such as Gamma[_] will cause FullSimplify to treat gamma functions as elementary objects which should not be transformed.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 3.3.9.
