Re: Removal of functions including subscripts in its name


Definitions like

Subscript[y,1][x_]= 3 x;

Subscript[z,1][x_]= 4x;

will be stored under Subscript, not y or z.
All such can be cleared by


And we can clear them one at a  time  thus:

Subscript[y,1][x_] = .

It is possible to convert subscript expressions to single symbols by using
the Notation Package.
