RE: Re: Easy question: Infinite Series, Infinite Sequences

As far as I know, there is no Mathematica FAQ, apart a few questions on
WRI  site, relative to Mathematica installation and general features,
which  won't help you so much in developping Mathematica notebooks.

"The Mathematica book", which comes with every distribution of
Mathematica,  is the main source of information. If you have version 3,
all this  information is available on line with the help browser. It's
also true for  "Standard AddOns packages".

I suggest you to have a look at
which contains a tip archive, mainly related to version 3 front end

There is also a Mathematica related site at
but I'm afraid it's not really maintained and some links are broken.

WRI site provides also a page to Mathematica related sites.

MathGroup is an important source: all archives are available on WRI

Hope this helps,

I have just discovered that (duh!) "Table" was the function I was
looking for, so maybe I ought to broaden my request and ask for general
advice on learning how to use Mathematica.

Also, I have searched on the web and looked at comp.answers as well as
elsewhere in this newsgroup, and I'm afraid I haven't been able to
locate the comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica FAQ. Does such a document
exist seperate from the general Mathematica FAQ located on Wolfram's
website? I do tend to plunge right into things first and tidy up
details later, so I hope I haven't bored anybody to absolute tears yet!
I'm willing to make amends.

Since I have taken up so much bandwidth already, I may as well go ahead
and introduce myself to the newsgroup: I'm a third-year undergrad at
the University of Utah, pursuing an engineering degree. Due to idealism
or foolishness, I spent two of those years enriching myself in a
fine-arts program before perceiving the illuminating light of science,
with the end result that I am currently enrolled in only third-quarter
freshman calculus and first-quarter sophomore physics. However, I will
gladly answer any and all questions regarding music theory or music
history, should such issues ever arise <g>, and I promise the day will
come that I will even be able to answer a real technical/mathematical
question relevant to this newsgroup.

Again, thank you all for your patience and helpfulness,

Brandon Burt
