Hi,

I was wondering how Mathematica evaluates given symbolic expressions. Does it really calculate them using symbols the same way as human may do? Or does it use numerical evaluations for example when checking convergence of some nasty integrals?

My question in a nutshell: does Mathematica use numerical evaluations for symbolic calculations?

Cheers,

Greg
