Click here for examples to see how special symbols are used. Examples are accompanied by source code and are rather self explanatory.

  • Sums are entered using a "sum" function
 sum( from, to, expression )   <-- sum with limits
 sum( expression )             <-- sum without limits

Example:

 e=sum( i=0, N, 1/i! )
 sum( 1/i ) = infinity
  • Integrals are similar to sums and are entered using the 'int' symbol
 int( expression, dx, from, to )   <- integral with limits
 int( expression, dx )             <- integral without limits (undetermined)

Example:

 int( 1/x^2, dx, 1, infinity )
 int( e^(x^2/2), dx )
