yields True if is determined to be less than .
yields True if the form a strictly increasing sequence.
- Less gives True or False when its arguments are real numbers.
- Less does some simplification when its arguments are not numbers.
- For exact numeric quantities, Less internally uses numerical approximations to establish numerical ordering. This process can be affected by the setting of the global variable $MaxExtraPrecision.
