I am having a problem with explicit functions. I am trying to write a procedure that returns a function that returns a function. I would like to have it return this as a pure function. I am not sure how to do this. I will state this problem another way; I know that if f[a]=4+a, then as a pure function, f is analagous to Function[4 + Slot[1]]. I want to know how to represent f as a pure function when f[a][b]=a+b; Nathan Linger Sophomore University of Illinois
