I am blind and trying to use mathematica to solve some entropy equations. I have:
I find it easier to use the long notation than the standard mathematica symbols. I was then trying to simplify this with the Simplify command with the constraint Subscript[p,i]==1/n. This resulted in mathematica giving me back my original equation unchanged.
After reading the docs, it appears that I need to use the Symbolize function to treat the Subscript[p,i] as a symbol. Unfortunately, the only way to use Symbolize is through the palette provided and the palettes are unusable by me. Any suggestions?
