I am learning how to use Mathematica. Where can I find a good and easy to understand explanation of above symbols. I follow the examples in the "help" menu, but I am not sure what is going on. For example, trying to modify the following:
ListPlot[CityData[#, "Population"] & /@
CityData[{All, #, "UnitedStates"}] & /@ {"California"}]
so that I can place Region and Country as the two arguments, it does not work.
I notice that #, & and @ are used quite extensively for programming.
Thanks.
