When the _Rigorous CAS option is selected, the algebraic expression |X|,
i.e., the absolute value, is not simplified to X. If the _Rigorous CAS option is
not selected, the algebraic expression |X| is simplified to X.
The CAS can solve a larger variety of problems if the rigorous mode is not set.
However, the result, or the domain in which the result are applicable, might
be more limited.
Simplify non-rational CAS setting
When the _Simp Non-Rational CAS option is selected, non-rational
expressions will be automatically simplified. On the other hand, if the _Simp
Non-Rational CAS option is not selected, non-rational expressions will not be
