Notebook[{cell1, cell2, ...}]
is the low-level construct that represents a notebook manipulated by the Mathematica front end.
  • Notebook files contain explicit Notebook expressions written out in textual form.
  • You can manipulate open notebooks in the front end using standard commands in the front end, and using the Option Inspector.
  • Open notebooks in the front end are referred to in the kernel by NotebookObject constructs. You can use Options and SetOptions to look at and modify options for open notebooks.
Use low-level Notebook and Cell expressions to construct a notebook:
