[mg6072] creating variables
Posted:
Feb 18, 1997 10:17 PM


I would like to create a list of variables a1,a2,a3 and so forth. The natural approach would seem to be:
Table[a[[i]], {i, 1, 2}]
but then I get the following "errors"
Part::partd: Part specification a[[1]] is longer than depth of object.
Part specification a[[2]] is longer than depth of object.
Although the final answer is what I want.
{a[[1]], a[[2]]}
I could of course turn the error off but perhaps there is another more elegant (?) way of handling this issue. Thanks for your input.
