# PEL operators

PerformancePoint Expression Language (PEL) supports the following operators that specify evaluations to be performed on designated elements called operands.

# In This Section

- - (negation) (PEL)

Returns the negative value of a numeric expression.

- - (subtraction) (PEL)

Subtracts two numbers.

- * (multiplication) (PEL)

Multiplies two numbers.

- / (division) (PEL)

Divides one number by another number.

- : (range) (PEL)

Returns the positive value of a numeric expression.

- ^ (exponentiation) (PEL)

Raises one number to the power of another number.

- + (addition) (PEL)

Adds two numbers.

- + (identity) (PEL)

Returns a naturally ordered set, with the two specified members as endpoints and all members between the two specified members included as members of the set.

- < (less than) (PEL)

For non-null arguments, returns TRUE if the left argument has a value that is less than the right argument; otherwise, FALSE.

- <= (less than or equal to) (PEL)

For non-null arguments, returns TRUE if the left argument has a value that is lower than or equal to the right argument; otherwise, FALSE.

- <> (not equal to) (PEL)

For non-null arguments, returns TRUE if the left argument is not equal to the right argument; otherwise, FALSE.

- == (equal to) (PEL)

For non-null arguments, returns TRUE if the left argument is equal to the right argument; otherwise, FALSE.

- > (greater than) (PEL)

For non-null arguments, returns TRUE if the left argument has a value that is larger than the right argument; otherwise, FALSE.

- >= (greater than or equal to) (PEL)

For non-null arguments, returns TRUE if the left argument has a value that is greater than or equal to the right argument; otherwise, FALSE.

- AND (PEL)

Performs a logical conjunction on two numeric expressions.

- NOT (PEL)

Performs a logical negation on a numeric expression.

- OR (PEL)

Performs a logical disjunction on two numeric expressions.

- XOR (PEL)

Performs a logical exclusion on two numeric expressions.
