Hi,
I'm looking for solutions for:

f := x^n(x^2 - sum [b_j*c_j, {1, n}]) = 0

b_j and c_j are indexed complex variables,
1 <= j <= n-1
Whatever I've tried, Mathematica produces error messages
like '' Set::write: Tag Times in x^n(x^2 - sum [b_j*c_j, {1, n is Protected ''

Can Mathematica solve this or similar equations?

And:
Is there a way to construct (n-by-n)-matrices?
i.e.
{{a_11, a_12, ..., a_1n}, {a_21, a_22, ..., a_2n}, ..., {a_n1, a_n2, ..., a_nn}} ??

Thanks,
Felix
