Here are some of the ways:

al[n_] := Table[ToExpression["a"<>ToString[k]],{k,n}];

a = al[5];

b = Rest[a-RotateRight[a]]

{a2-a1,a3-a2,a4-a3,a5-a4}

b==Drop[RotateLeft[a]-a,-1]

True

b==Rest[a]-Drop[a,-1]

True

b==ListCorrelate[{-1,1}, a]

True

b==ListConvolve[{1,-1}, a]

True

<< i need some helps to begin to understand Mathematica

I have a time series 
a:=[a_1,a_2,a_3,a_4,...a_n]
how can i do to subtract each element for the previous one?:

b:=[a_2 - a_1, a_3 - a_2, a_4 - a_3,.....,a_n - a_n-1] >><BR><BR>
