Calling Sequence

type(expr, scalar)

Parameters

expr

expression

Description

• 

Checks if expr is a scalar. This is the case if expr is algebraic and not a Vector or Matrix.

• 

More precisely, expr is a scalar if:

– 

expr is of type algebraic, and

– 

expr is not the name of a procedure, table, or module, and

– 

if the top-level type of expr is one of `*`, `+`, `.`, `^`, `&*`, `&+`, and `&^` (that is, if op(0, expr) is one of these operators), then all its arguments are scalars.
