Hi Derek, you may define a function that apply the first argument to the seond argument and then use "Inner". E.g. f[x_, y_] = x[y]; Inner[f, {f1, f2, f3}, {a, b, c}, List] gives {f1[a], f2[b], f3[c]} Sincerely, Daniel D M Yates wrote: > I have a list of functions, and a list of arguments: > > For example, > f = {f1, f2, f3} > a = {a1,a2,a3} > > I would like to return > {f1[a1],f2[a2],f3[a3]} > > I thought this should easy, but am stumped.
