I was looking for subscripted variables to conveniently extend notation for things such as points determining a polynomial, and so on. Formulas to do this kind of thing appear in all the math refererences with subscripted variables, and I think it's the most natural notation. We're not really interested in an array of points, just the individual points, in this case. It's simply a more uncluttered notation. Chris
