Hi,
I'm doing a calculaton that's purly symbolic (no graphing, numerical integration, etc.).
Suppose I have a function f[x_]:=... that's very complex to build. In fact, f[x] ends up being a manageable expression (about 30 characters) but it takes Mathematica about 30 min to build that expression.
Another function g[] uses the function f[x] and references it many times. I've discovered that g[] actually builds f[x] every time it's referenced which takes 30 minutes each time. Theoretically, Mathematica could build it once and then use the resulting expression every time it's referenced.
So how do I accomplish that? That is, how do I make it build f[x] once and then use the resulting expression when it's needed?
Thanks,
Pavel
