In this regard, it would be natural to explore the large class of nonelementary planar surfaces, which form a classical subject in complex analysis and uniformization theory.
(1.) In mathematics, the error function (also called the Gauss error function) is a special function (nonelementary) of sigmoid shape that occurs in probability, statistics, and partial differential equations describing diffusion.
Proofs of the universality of nonelementary, one-dimensional cellular automata are instead in [5, 6].
Generally, PSF is a nonelementary function with respect to either wavelength or spatial coordinates, so only the numerical expression form can be obtained through numerical analysis methods.
In fact, the overwhelming majority (about 95 percent) of the newly minted STEM majors in each cohort who enter the teaching profession teach in math or science classrooms (i.e., nonelementary and including math, biology/life science, chemistry, geology/earth/space science, physics, computer science, or general science).
Division rules (e") allow the division of nonelementary membranes, where all membranes from the initial membranes will be replicated and will appear in the new copies of this membrane.

For all nonelementary students, those who major in relevant subject matter are also more likely to succeed on the respective licensure tests.
We did not tackle the problem of evaluating the complexity of the algorithm (which is probably nonelementary as written) nor that of the problem.
Since a typical integral similar to the one here will possess a nonelementary antiderivative, it is a difficult programming task to separate out those special cases where real, elementary antiderivatives exist.
