Re: Array reference help please


decayTerm[time_,decayParameter_,amplitude_,startTime_]=
  With[{elapsedTime=t-startTime},
    amplitude*UnitStep[elapsedTime]*Exp[decayParameter*elapsedTime]]

plotFun[t_]=Total@Apply[decayTerm[t,-100,##]&,Table[Random[],{40},{2}],{1}];

Plot[Evaluate@plotFun@t,{t,0,1}]
