Hi Sotirios,

Why do you think it's a bug. C[1][z][x] is a perfectly legitimite way
to type a function of two variables. Look here:

In[64]:= f[x_][y_][z_] := x^y^z

In[65]:= f[a][b][c]

Out[65]= a^b^c

Checking the solution:

In[63]:= D[C[1][z][x] + C[2][z][y], x, y]

Out[63]= 0

No problemo.

Cheers -- Sjoerd
