Questions on the construction and manipulation of sparse arrays in Mathematica, with functions like SparseArray and Band.
Questions about transformation rules in Mathematica--constructs that let you set, or programmatically modify, local values for expressions.
Tag for the usage of RSolve, RecurrenceTable, DifferenceRoot, and other functions related to difference equations.
Question relating numerical representations, operations and methods, including approximate results instead of exact symbolic results.
Questions on undocumented functionality of Mathematica. Note that such functions might be subject to change without notice in future versions.

Questions relating to Mathematica's sound and audio functionality, including Play, Sound, Audio and Speak.
Questions which deal with or solve for functions expressed in integral form, i.e., one or more unknown functions that appear under an integral sign.
Questions about using, converting, or interpreting units of measurement in Mathematica.
Questions on the application of Mathematica to geography, including the use of the CountryData and CityData functions. Not to be confused with geodesy.
For questions relating to assignments to symbols, patterns, or expressions.
Questions on dealing with vector calculus functions of Mathematica such as Grad, Div, Curl, Laplacian and their representations in various coordinate systems.
Homework questions are welcome, as long as they are asked honestly, explain the problem, and show sufficient effort. Please do not use this as the only tag for a question. Please do not add this tag t…
