SequenceForm

  • SequenceForm[ , , ... ] prints as the textual concatenation of the printed forms of the .
  • Expressions printed by SequenceForm have their baselines aligned.
  • SequenceForm acts as a "wrapper", which affects printing, but not evaluation.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.8.6.
  • See also: RowBox, ColumnForm, TableForm.

    Further Examples

    The default is to use scientific notation for all numbers with exponents outside the range -5 to 5.

    In[1]:=

    Out[1]=

    This gives the exponents in a form like Fortran's e-format.

    In[2]:=

    Out[2]//NumberForm=
