Hello,
Mathematica uses different kinds of parentheses (in german there is a
common name "Klammer" for all of these symbols), like (, [, and
{. They have different meanings. 
So your best strategy would be to look into the Mathematica book for
examples. The same applies to your other question.

Alois
