With inequalities like that, we must be getting the real solutions.

When possible, use actual mathematician's notation, like sin(x) or Re(x). Sometimes explain further, like BesselJ or LambertW. Sometimes there is an old notation like matrix that is kept for compatibility, when a new notation like Matrix is introduced.
