Hi, For variable names, the documentation states - "The Wolfram Language uses both uppercase and lowercase letters. There is a convention that built?in Wolfram Language objects always have names starting with uppercase (capital) letters. To avoid confusion, you should always choose names for your own variables that start with lowercase letters." I have some groups of formulas that use both upper and lower case letters - the capital letter means one thing and the same lowercase letter means something different yet related to the capital letter. Can I use capital letters with subscripts or superscripts for variable names? Or, does that violate the above documentation guidance? Thanks, Mike
It too might take on a different meaning then what you intended
In:= max = 5
In:= Subscript[C, max]
Out= Subscript[C, 5]
Ok - Thanks Kay
As you can probably tell, I'm new to Mathematica. I'm playing around with some equations from a text book and wanted to follow the textbook naming conventions as much as possible to minimize any errors. It's not that big of a problem - I can adopt some naming conventions that are close enough.
Thanks again for your help.
I wouldn't because they too can have unintended meanings: In:= Pi
I see what you mean about superscripts. For subscripts I was thinking of something like capital "C" and a subscript or "max" or "min" Do you think that would be a problem?
