Exponentials

Long-hand:

Short-hand:

exp(f(x,y,...))

Most commonly:
e^f(x,y,...)

Limits

Long-hand:

Short-hand:

lim(f(r,x,...),r,c)

where c can be a
finite quantity, or ∞. The limit from the left is called llim, and the limit from the right rlim.

Most commonly:

lim_r->c f(r,x,...)

Sums

Long-hand:

Short-hand:

sum(f(x,r,...),r,a,b)

Taylor/Maclaurin series

Long-hand:

The Taylor series of degree k for f(x,y,...) with respect to x about a.

Short-hand:

tayl(f(x,y,...),x,k,a)

Long-hand:

The Maclaurin series of degree k for f(x,y,...) with respect to x.

Short-hand:

macl(f(x,y,...),x,k)

Integrals

Long-hand:

Short-hand:

int(f(x),x,a,b)

Derivatives

Long-hand:

Short-hand:

d/dx(f(x))
