O-term (The Landau Symbol)

MuPAD® notebooks are not recommended. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.

MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, though there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.

When computing the series expansions, you get expressions with one of the terms represented as the Landau symbol O. This term shows the truncation order (error order) of the computed series expansion.

MuPAD® automatically simplifies the O-term:

O(10*x^7 + 20*x^8),
O(x^2 + x + 1),
O(x^3*y^2 + x^2*y^2)

When evaluating expressions with order terms, the system uses standard arithmetical operations for these terms:

O(x^3)/O(x^2),
O(x^3) + O(x^2),
O(x^3)*O(x^2)
