```First of all you should put your question as a new posting and not
hijack a thread that has nothing to do with it.

Secondly, you really should try to read some basic documentation on
Mathematica. Just looking at someone's code and starting a newsgroup
discussion for every element your unfamiliar with is rather
inefficient, to say the least.

Anyway, to answer your question: [[ .. ]] are used to indicate array
indices. Single brackets [ .. ] are used for function arguments.
