BUILT-IN MATHEMATICA SYMBOL
is an option to Solve and related functions that specifies how many extra equational conditions on continuous parameters to allow in solutions that are given.
- Solve gives generic solutions only. Solutions that are valid only when continuous parameters satisfy equations are removed. Additional solutions can be obtained by using nondefault settings for MaxExtraConditions.
- The following settings can be used:
|0 (None)||include solutions that require no equations on continuous parameters|
|k||include solutions that require up to k equations on continuous parameters|
|Infinity||include all solutions|
|All||include all solutions and all conditions|
|Automatic||include solutions that require the minimal number of equations on continuous parameters|
- With the setting MaxExtraConditions->All, all conditions are included. Other settings will exclude inequations and NotElement conditions on continuous parameters.
This system has no generic solutions:
This gives solutions that require the minimal number of equational conditions:
This gives solutions with arbitrary conditions on parameters:
You can specify the maximal number of equations on parameters to allow:
