// </etymology>

// <synopsis>
// A <linkto class=LatticeExpr>LatticeExpr</linkto> represents
// a mathematical expression of lattices. All standard operators, regions,
// and many, many <linkto class=LatticeExprNode>functions</linkto>
// can be used in an expression.
// <br> An expression is calculated on-the-fly. Thus only when
// the user gets a part of the lattice, is the expression calculated
// for that part. Subexpressions resulting in a scalar are calculated
// only once, on a get of the first part of the lattice expression.
// <br> Note that a lattice expression is not writable, thus using
// the put function on such a lattice results in an exception.
// <br> <a href="../notes/223.html">Note 223</a>
// gives a more detailed
// explanation of the capabilities of LEL (Lattice Expression Language).
// <p>
// If the expression consists of images, the result can also be
// treated as an image using class <linkto class=ImageExpr>ImageExpr</linkto>.
// With the <src>command</src> function in
// <linkto class=ImageExprParse>ImageExprParse</linkto> it is possible
// to parse and execute a LEL expression given as as a string.
