Hi Brian,

what you see is a piecewise function, indicated by the lonely left 

brace. The first part means: if:c Mg (rg+rp)+rg (-c Mg+rg+rp)>=0  then 

the function value is -1 and otherwise the next epression.

However, why you get the same function for c Mg (rg+rp)+rg (-c 

Mg+rg+rp)>=0 and c Mg (rg+rp)+rg (-c Mg+rg+rp)<0 and why this is not 

simplified I can not tell.

hope this helps, Daniel
