Function of N variable

I have put together a few function for differential geometry in 3D.
All my functions were of the kind F(z1_, z2_, z3_). Now I want to
generalize to 4D, then 5D, etc. Is there a good way to represent a
function of N variables? For example, I want to be able to say grad[F]
[???] to obtain a list of N function (partial derivatives) of N
variables. I understand these are vague questions, but I am only
looking for some keywords.

Many thanks in advance,
