Use pure functions inside Composition:
Use Apply with Composition:
Identity inside a composition is simplified:
Create a composition of a sequence of functions:
Create a sum of numbers to be displayed in held form:
Pure functions let you set up objects that work like Composition:
Different ways of entering compositions:
Compose a function with itself times using Nest:
Compose a function with itself times using RSolve:
Compose TransformationFunction objects:
Use ComposeSeries to do composition of series expansions:
