Matthias, In my previous post the order in the final list was changed. It occuured to me that you might want to keep the order of the orginal list. To accomplish this simply apply MapThread again with List as its first argument: mylist = {{a, b, c}, {d, e, f}, {g, h, i}}; mypowers = {r, s, t}; MapThread[List, MapThread[List, mylist + 1]^mypowers] {{(1 + a)^r, (1 + b)^s, (1 + c)^t}, {(1 + d)^r, (1 + e)^s, (1 + f)^t}, {(1 + g)^r, (1 + h)^s, (1 + i)^t}} Brian In article <95gmed$8jh at smc.vnet.net>, Matthias.Bode at oppenheim.de wrote: > Dear Colleagues, > > I have a list of lists > > {{a, b, c}, {d, e, f}, {g, h, i}, ...}. > > 1.
