IntegerQ

IntegerQ[expr]

gives True if expr is an integer, and False otherwise.

Details

  • IntegerQ[expr] returns False unless expr is manifestly an integer (i.e. has head Integer).
  • Simplify[exprIntegers] can be used to try to determine whether an expression is mathematically equal to an integer.

Basic Examples  (1)

IntegerQ tests whether an expression is explicitly an integer:

Applications  (2)

Test whether an array consists of all integers:

Make a test for Gaussian integers:

Properties & Relations  (2)

Integers have head Integer:

An expression may have head Integer, but IntegerQ gives False:

Possible Issues  (1)

Expressions that do not evaluate to integers explicitly will still give False:

It is necessary to use symbolic simplification first:
