ParsedFunction

!syntax description /Functions/ParsedFunction

Description

The ParsedFunction function takes a mathematical expression in value. The expression can be a function of time (t) or coordinate (x, y, or z). The expression can include common mathematical functions. Examples include 4e4+1e2*t, sqrt(x*x+y*y+z*z), and if(t\textless=1.0, 0.1*t, (1.0+0.1)*cos(pi/2*(t-1.0)) - 1.0).

Constant variables may be used in the expression if they have been declared with vars and defined with vals.

Further information can be found at the function parser site.
