yourFunction[a_,{list_}]:= ..

will match to calls like yourFunction[any,{a}],

but never to yourFunction[any,{a,b,c}]

You mean
yourFunction[a_,list_List]:= ...

and your function that set all variables in list
to zero should look like

yourFunction[a_,lst:{__Symbol}]:=a /. (#->0 & /@

| Hi,
| I'm writing a package and I want to define a 
function of the form:
| Function[a_,{list_}], where "a" is a generic 
expression of more variables and
| "list" is a list of those variable that must go 
to zero. So in this way,
| Function automatically eliminate the variables 
that I specify after the comma.
| How can I create this function?
| Thanks,
| Maria
