Try this in Mathematica: Plot[{1, 2}, {x, 0, 1}] listOfFunctions = Table[i, {i, 1, 2}] (*now listOfFunctions equals {1,2}*) Plot[listOfFunctions, {x, 0, 1}] Can anyone tell me a) WHY the first Plot instruction works and the second doesn't and b) How I can MAKE this kind of construction work. I need the construction in a much more general context than this---this is the simplest example where the "obvious" code screws up. I tried the archives of the mailing lists, but they all refer to EFFICIENCY questions. I can't even get Mathematica to parse the above 3 lines of code. Please copy any responses to dbae at maths.warwick.ac.uk, because I don't read the Mathematica mailing list. Thanks a lot David
