Calling Sequence

simplify(expr, power, symbolic)

Parameters

any expression

Description

• 

The simplify/power procedure is used to simplify powers, exponentials, and logarithms in an expression.

• 

This calling sequence prevents simplify from analyzing the expression and calling other simplification routines, therefore returning a result much more quickly.

• 

The symbolic option can be used if it does not matter whether the transformations are correct over the whole complex plane.
