Hello,

i would like to know, if it's possible to overwrite objects, which are
defined as parameters for functions?

I made the experience, that you have to define a copy of this objects
to change values of them.

I don't know how Mathematica manage these copies. Is there a method
like garbage collection?

Shall i delete these objects manually?

Best regards

J.A.
