DetailsDetails

  • Clip[x] is effectively equivalent to Piecewise[{{-1, x<-1}, {+1, x>+1}}, x].
  • The , as well as other arguments of Clip, need not be numbers.
  • For exact numeric quantities, Clip internally uses numerical approximations to establish its result. This process can be affected by the setting of the global variable $MaxExtraPrecision.
