**Math Expressions**

An expression is a combination of Integers or Reals and operators that Symsyn interprets according to rules of precedence to produce another value.

**Integer Expressions**

Integer expressions are enclosed in a pair of ( ). The result of the expression is placed in the following integer variable or string.

` `

` ( x + 3 ) y`

` ( x min y ) z`

` ( x shl 2 ) z`

` ( ( ( x * 3 ) + 5 ) mod 2 ) z`

` `

** - | subtract**

** * | multiply**

** / | integer divide**

** mod | modulus**

** ^ | power**

** and | logical and**

** or | logical or**

** xor | logical exclusive or**

** max | maximum of 2 values**

** not | logical not**

** abs | absolute value**

** sqrt | integer square root**

** **

**Real (Floating Point) Expressions**

Real expressions are enclosed in a pair of { }. The result of the expression is placed in the following real variable or string.

` { sqrt ( rx^2 + ry^2 ) } rz`

` { 15 % ((rx + ry) * 1.06 ) } rz`

` { degtorad(rlon2 - rlon1) } lon1`

` { cos rlon1 * cos rlat1 - cos rlat2 } rdx`

` { arcsin(sqrt(rdx^2 + rdy^2 + rdz^2)/2) * 12745.6 } rkms`

` { sin ( degtorad ( lat ) ) } $s`

` `

` `

** + | add**

** - | subtract**

** * | multiply**

** / | divide **

** ^ | power**

** % | percent**

** min | minimum of 2 values**

** max | maximum of 2 values**

** abs | absolute value**

** ** **sin | sine**

** cos | cosine**

** tan | tangent**

** arcsin | arc sine**

** arccos | arc cosine**

** arctan** **| arc tangent**

** **

**String Expressions**

String expressions are enclosed in a pair of " ". The result of the expression is placed in the following string variable or exported.
