Why does the following give me 'indeterminate, infinite expression encountered', etc. instead of zero.... (1/p) UnitStep[p-1] /.p->0 I defined a function using the UnitStep because p could = 0 and I thought this would be the way around that problem.......but didnt work the way I expected..... jerry blimbaum
