On the FAQ it says: "We welcome questions about: • Software that mathematicians use". However, when I went to post a question about maple, I found this:
For questions involving the application of the program Maple to mathematics. NOTE: questions which focus primarily on the program Maple and not on its applications to mathematics are not appropriate for this site.
Questions "primarily on the program Maple" definitely fall into the category "Software that mathematicians use" from the FAQ. I think either the FAQ should read "Applications of software that mathematicians use" or the tag wiki for maple is incorrect.
So what's the story? Are questions about software that mathematicians use, not their applications, welcome or not?
taylor(exp(x),x,2);returns $1+x+O(x^2)$. How can I automatically convert this result to the same expression with the $O(x^2)$ terms removed? I.e. something like
removeBigO(taylor(exp(x),x,2));to return $1+x$?" $\endgroup$
