- If[Condition, Object]
- Yields a copy of the object if the condition evaluates to
*true*, and an undefined object if it evaluates to*false*. - If[Condition, Object a, Object b]
- Yields a copy of object
*a*if the condition evaluates to*true*, and a copy of object*b*if it evaluates to*false*.

**Note:**

- The
*If*command can be used to create conditional functions. Such conditional functions may be used as arguments in any command that takes a function argument, such as Derivative, Integral, and Intersect. - Example:
`f(x) = If[x < 3, sin(x), x^2]`yields a function that equals*sin(x)*for*x < 3*and*x*for^{2}*x ≥ 3*. - See the section Boolean values for the symbols used in conditional statements.
