ntype
:: Classifier of type num. Returns a sub-type number, an integer, for obj.
integer
number
rational number
floating double (double precision floating point number)
algebraic number over rational number field
arbitrary precision floating point number (bigfloat)
complex number
element of a finite field
element of a large finite prime field
element of a finite field of characteristic 2
newalg(x^2+1)
and the unit of
imaginary number @i
have different number sub-types, and
it is treated independently.

vtype
:: Type of indetarminates var.
integer
indeterminate
ordinary indeterminate, which can be directly typed in on a keyboard (a,b,x,afo,bfo,...,etc.)
Special indeterminate, created by uc()
(_0
, _1
, _2
, ... etc.)
function form (sin(x)
, log(a+1)
, acosh(1)
, @pi
, @e
, ... etc.)
functor (built-in functor name, user defined functor, functor for
the elementary functions)
: sin
, log
, ... etc)
a();
’ will cause an error, but it changes
the system database for identifiers. After this error, you will find
‘vtype(a)
’ will result 3. (Identifier a
is registered as
a user defined functor).
@pi
and @e
are treated as indeterminates,
whereas they are treated as numbers within functions eval()
and
pari()
.
