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.
- C is the default setting for the option GeneratedParameters in such functions as DSolve, RSolve, and Reduce.
