<< Am having trouble getting collections of 2D function plots to work. I have
created a function that returns a list of "equations" in one variable,
theta. I.e. an equation is an expression like 17 Cos[theta] + 10
Sin[theta]. When I try to plot this list of functions AS THE RETURN VALUE
OF MY FUNCTION, Mathematica complains (details below). However, if I
evaluate the function first, then cut and paste the result into the call to
Plot, it works ok (but this is not very useful to me, since I want to
incorporate this into a larger function). Further, if my function returns a
list with only one equation in it, then handing the function call to Plot
works. I'm clueless as to what he difference is. >><BR><BR>
