Greater (>)

x>y
yields True if x is determined to be greater than y.
x1>x2>x3
yields True if the x_i form a strictly decreasing sequence.
  • 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.
