• C[i] is the default form for the i parameter or constant generated in representing the results of various symbolic computations.
• The C[i] are often used to parameterize families of solutions to equations.
• In functions like DSolve
, the C[i]
can be thought of as corresponding to constants of integration.
• In cases such as partial differential equations, the C[i] represent functions rather than variables.
