Sounds like a really bad idea... But if you must: Unprotect[Power] Power[0, 0] = 1 (If you look at FullForm[a^b] you'll see it's an abbreviation of Power[a, b], so it's the Power function you need to redefine.) underscore wrote: > Hi, > > I'd like to define 0^0=1 in Mathematica such that it doesn't return > Indeterminate when this occurs. > > Thanks > > -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
