You should try the Jacobian matrix which is the matrix of derivatives of all expressions to all variables. It's in the Mathematica book in the Tour through Mathematica, section 9. Programming ( p. 12 in the german edition): Jacobi[funs_List, vars_List] := Outer[D, funs, vars] Hope this helps Hendrik merx at pc.chemie.th-darmstadt.de
