represents the domain of non-negative real numbers.


  • xNonNegativeReals evaluates immediately if x is a numeric quantity.
  • Simplify[exprNonNegativeReals,assum] can be used to try to determine whether an expression corresponds to a non-negative real number under the given assumptions.
  • (x1|x2|)NonNegativeReals and {x1,x2,}NonNegativeReals test whether all xi are non-negative real numbers.
  • NonNegativeReals is output in StandardForm and TraditionalForm as . This typeset form can be input using nnreals.

Basic Examples  (3)

is a non-negative real number:

If is a real number, then is a non-negative real number:

Find non-negative real solutions of an equation:

Scope  (4)

Test if a numeric quantity is non-negative:

Make domain membership assumptions:

Specify the default domain over which a function should work:

Test whether several numbers are non-negative reals:

If any number is explicitly not a non-negative number, the result is False:

Applications  (1)

Testing membership in the non-negative reals is a fast way to verify non-negativity of a large list:

Properties & Relations  (4)

Membership in NonNegativeReals is equivalent to membership in Reals along with non-negativity:

NonNegativeReals contains NonNegativeRationals and NonNegativeIntegers:

NonNegativeReals is contained in Complexes:

NonNegativeReals is disjoint from NegativeReals:

It intersects NonPositiveReals:
