Hi mathematica community, C[i] is the default form for the i th parameter or constant generated by mathematica in representing the results of various symbolic computations in such functions as DSolve, RSolve and Reduce. My question is: is it possible to know in advance how many C[i] will be generated? If not how to represent the generic form of them: For example I have an input with reduce and mathematica generates in the output C,C ,C and C so four C[i] in the solutions but before that when I wrote the input I did not know that it will generate four C[i] and I need to use something in the input that represent C[i] in general without knowing how many of them will be generated? I have tried to use the pattern object _ like that C[ _ ] but it does not work. Any suggestion? Thank you very much.
