Table

Table[expr,{imax}]
generates a list of copies of expr.

Table[expr,{i,imax}]
generates a list of the values of expr when i runs from 1 to .

Table[expr,{i,imin,imax}]
starts with .

Table[expr,{i,imin,imax,di}]
uses steps di.

Table[expr,{i,{i1,i2,}}]
uses the successive values , , .

Table[expr,{i,imin,imax},{j,jmin,jmax},]
gives a nested list. The list associated with i is outermost. »

DetailsDetails

  • You can use Table to build up vectors, matrices, tensors and other arrays.
  • Table uses the standard Wolfram Language iteration specification.
  • Table evaluates its arguments in a nonstandard way.
  • Table[expr,spec] first evaluates spec, then localizes the variable specified, and successively assigns values to it, each time evaluating expr.
  • Table effectively uses Block to localize values or variables.
  • Table[expr,spec1,spec2] is effectively equivalent to Table[Table[expr,spec2],spec1].
