The thing is, if the system does an internal (transparent) variable substitution as you and I described, the current framework (which has only hints that can be >0 =0 or <0) works without modification, hence little additional effort for me to code it. Following your example, the user provides 'LN(X)  X>1', the system internally converts it to 'LN(X+1)  X:R>0' and now the rules engine can use those hints to infer for example that the result of X+1 if X is R>0 is another R>0, therefore its LN(R>0) is Real otherwise the result would have to be assumed complex. The rules engine is not smart enough to know if (X+1)>1 (which could help refine the scope of LN() by saying if the result is R>=0 or R<0, because that requires to actually compute the expression X+1 or simplify the expression (X+1)1, neither of them can be done from within the rules engine.
