FilledSmallSquare Lists are very general objects that represent collections of expressions.

FilledSmallSquare 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.

FilledSmallSquare a, b, c represents a vector.

FilledSmallSquare a, b, c, d represents a matrix.

FilledSmallSquare Nested lists can be used to represent tensors.
