- n represents the number of recursions

- taylorrecursions is a global variable. Its value represents the number of steps of recursion that are used when applying Taylor's rule. This rule is applied by the interval evaluator present in the core of Sollya (and particularly visible in commands like infnorm).
- To improve the quality of an interval evaluation of a function f, in particular when there are problems of decorrelation), the evaluator of Sollya uses Taylor's rule: f([a,b]) C f(m) + [a-m, b-m]*f'([a,b]) where m=(a+b)/2. This rule can be applied recursively. The number of step in this recursion process is controlled by taylorrecursions.
- Setting taylorrecursions to 0 makes Sollya use this rule only once; setting it to 1 makes Sollya use the rule twice, and so on. In particular: the rule is always applied at least once.
