Hello. By searching the archives I found how to write variables with specific values. E.g., the following examples work: In[253]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->"a=" <> ToString[a] "b=" <> ToString[b] ] In[254]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm ["a=",a,"b=",b]] Then I also found how to write a label on several lines: In[256]:= Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->"2 \n lines"] But I did not find or succeed in combining the two. E.g., those do not work: In[255]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->"a=" <> ToString[a] \n "b=" <> ToString[b] ] Syntax::sntxf: "a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->"a=" <> ToString[a" cannot be followed by "]\n"b=" <> ToString[b] ]". In[264]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm["a=",a,\n" b=",b]] Syntax::com: Warning: comma encountered with no adjacent expression; the expression will be treated as Null. Syntax::sntxf: "a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm ["a=",a" cannot be followed by ",\n"b=",b]]". In[264]:= a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm["a=",a] \n SequenceForm["b=",b]] Syntax::sntxf: "a=1;b=2; Plot[ Sin[x],{x,0,1},PlotLabel->SequenceForm["a=",a]" cannot be followed by " \n SequenceForm["b=",b]]". Is there a way to achieve this goal? Thanks in advance, AC
