This is documentation for Mathematica 3, which was
based on an earlier version of the Wolfram Language.
 List , , ... is a list of elements. Lists are very general objects that represent collections of expressions. Functions with attribute Listable are automatically "threaded" over lists, so that they act separately on each list element. Most built-in mathematical functions are Listable. a , b , c represents a vector. a , b , c , d represents a matrix. Nested lists can be used to represent tensors. See the Mathematica book: Section 1.2.3, Section 1.8.0. See also: Sequence. Further Examples A Mathematica list provides a way for you to group any kind of expressions. Here is a list of numbers. In[1]:= Out[1]= This gives a list of symbolic expressions. In[2]:= Out[2]= You can differentiate these expressions. In[3]:= Out[3]= Or your can find their values when x is replaced with 3. In[4]:= Out[4]= Here are two ways to see the internal representation of a list. In[5]:= Out[5]= In[6]:= Out[6]//FullForm=
