 Constructing Lists Mathematica provides powerful functions for constructing lists of any size and structure. Range — form a list from a range of numbers or other objects {1, 2, 3, ...} Table — make a table of any dimension of values of an expression Array — make an array of any dimension by applying a function to successive indices ConstantArray — form of a constant array of any dimension SparseArray, Normal — create a list from a sparse array position→value specification      Tuples — all possible n-tuples from a list RandomInteger, RandomChoice, ... — make lists of random elements      Lists from Iteration NestList — create a list by successively iterating a function Sow, Reap — create lists of elements "sown" inside programs      IntegerDigits, RealDigits — make lists from digits in numbers CoefficientList, CoefficientArrays — make lists from polynomials or equations      Characters — make a list from the characters in a string CharacterRange — a list of a range of characters (e.g. "a" through "z")      ReplaceList — make a list of possible pattern replacements      Importing Data as Lists TUTORIALS Constructing Lists Vectors and Matrices Applying Functions Repeatedly Building Lists from Functions Reading Textual Data MORE ABOUT Constructing Matrices List Manipulation
