Reals

Reals

represents the domain of real numbers, as in xReals.

Details

  • xReals evaluates immediately if x is a numeric quantity.
  • Simplify[exprReals,assum] can be used to try to determine whether an expression corresponds to a real number under the given assumptions.
  • (x1|x2|)Reals and {x1,x2,}Reals test whether all xi are real numbers.
  • Within Simplify and similar functions, objects that satisfy inequalities are always assumed to be real.
  • Reals is output in StandardForm or TraditionalForm as TemplateBox[{}, Reals]. This typeset form can be input using reals.
