Nasser,
Basically I don't think it is a correct construction. The different
iterators should have different iterator variables. So digging into why it
doesn't work is probably a wasted effort.
In your case you don't need an iterator variable. You could use...
Table[0, {16}, {16}] // MatrixForm
However, if you evaluate the following statement repeated you will obtain
different results and sometimes the correct one.
Table[0, {i, 1, 16}, {i, 1, 16}] // MatrixForm
But I just don't see a reason to use that construction.
Sometimes you might want to use a construction with an iterator variable in
one iterator and no variable in the second variable.
Table[i, {i, 1, 16}, {16}] // MatrixForm
Table[i, {16}, {i, 1, 16}] // MatrixForm

hello;
Mathematica 5.2, on XP.
When I type the command
Table[0,{i,1,2},{i,1,2}]
Table[0,{i,1,3},{i,1,3}]
Table[0,{i,1,4},{i,1,4}]
etc... all the way to
Table[0,{i,1,15},{i,1,15}]
I always get a 2D square Matrix filled with zeros as I expected.
But when I type
Table[0,{i,1,16},{i,1,16}]
Now the matrix returned no longer filled with zero.
Any idea why this is? and any other value of over 16 will also have this
problem.
Notice that when I change the second index counter from 'i' to 'j' it works:
Table[0,{i,1,16},{j,1,16}]
it works ok, and I get a matrix filled with zero.
any thoughts?
Here is a screen shot:
