Definition df-sgn 12896
 Description: Signum function. Pronounced "signum" , otherwise it might be confused with "sine". Defined as "sgn" in ISO 80000-2:2009(E) operation 2-9.13. It is named "sign" (with the same definition) in the "NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions" , front introduction, "Common Notations and Definitions" section at http://dlmf.nist.gov/front/introduction#Sx4. We define this over (df-xr 9632) instead of so that it can accept and . Note that df-psgn 16387 defines the sign of a permutation, which is different. Value shown in sgnval 12897.
