Question: Applying a list of funcs to a list of expressions

*Subject*: [mg2924] Question: Applying a list of funcs to a list of expressions*From*: groskyd at gv.ssi1.com (David Rosky)*Date*: 11 Jan 1996 09:46:18 -0600*Approved*: usenet@wri.com*Distribution*: local*Newsgroups*: wri.mathgroup*Organization*: Silicon Systems, Inc.*Sender*: mj at wri.com

I would like to specify a list of functions such as: funcs = {f1, f2, f3} and a list of values to which the functions will be applied: vals = {val1, val2, val3} I would then like to apply to each function to each corresponding value respectively to obtain the following list: DesiredOutputList = {f1[val1], f2[val2], f3[val3]} I can do this explicitly by defining the functions in terms of the explicit elements of the list such as f1[x_] := x[[1]]^2 and so on for the other functions, but I was wondering if there is a built-in way to apply a list of functions respectively to the elements of a list of values which would be simpler and more efficient. I looked through the Mathematica book and nothing obvious popped out at me, but is seems like such a simple concept that it must be there somewhere.
