yields True if is determined to be greater than .
yields True if the form a strictly decreasing sequence.
- Greater gives True or False when its arguments are real numbers.
- 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.
