Re: a question about subscript


Hello !

First, load the following package :

In[1]:=
<< "Utilities`Notation`"

Then, click in the automatically opened palette on Symbolize[ ]

In the filled square, type t1 (i.e. t subscript 1)

Here the InputForm :

In[2]:=
Symbolize[NotationBoxTag[\(t\_1\)]]

Then, it works fine :

In[3]:=
v[t_] = t + tâ?µSubscriptâ?µ1

Out[3]=
t + tâ?µSubscriptâ?µ1

In[4]:=
v[0]

Out[4]=
tâ?µSubscriptâ?µ1

You can also let all the subscript varaibles become "normal" by writing  

Symbolize[NotationBoxTag[\(_\__\)]]

Objet : [mg57820] a question about subscript


Hi,  my friends,
 
I want to take the advantage of the subscript in Mathematica 5.1.
I defined a function like the following:
 
v[t_]=t+t1
 
Since this is a plane text, I cannot type in the subscript t1 (i.e., t sub 1) for you. This is so simple which represents a time translocation of t1. I want Mathematica to compute v[0] and it is supposed to give t1 (ie. t sub 1).  I typed in v[0] but Mathematica gives me 01 (i.e., 0 sub 1). Obviously it is not the correct answer. Can anyone give me some insight of this delima? Thanks a lot.
