Global Computation Settings & Parameters
Mathematica is built to handle arbitrarily large computations—limited only by computer time and memory—and provides a collection of convenient global safety features to prevent programs from going out of control.
Limiting Computations
$RecursionLimit maximum recursion depth
$IterationLimit maximum number of iterations
Numerics
Computational Parameters
$Assumptions global assumptions to make about variables, etc.
