Hi,
a) you should use the Mathematica Syntax, i.e.,
a={1,2,3};
b={2,3,4};
b) Graphics[Point[a-b]]//Show
will show you the point.
In 3d coordinates is not possible to decide if {x,y,z} is a
point or a vector, you need homogene coordinates to make a point
p={x,y,z,1} or a vector v={x,y,z,0} ..
Regards
Jens
