I have a problem as follows: I have a set, for instance: s={{a,b,c},{d,e},{f,g}}, and I would like to get a set t, that includes all possible multiplications between those three sets {a,b,c}, {d,e} and {f,g}. Of course, one way would be : Outer[Times,{a,b,c},{d,e},{f,g}], but I'd like find some kind of a more reasonable way to do it, because it would be just a part of a larger program. Anyway, it doesn't have to be some elegant way; if it works, it's OK. Any suggestions? Tommi ==== [MESSAGE SEPARATOR] ====
