I was just saying that for the parametric functions this notation becomes a bit lengthy. But note that my "but still..." was meant as a +0, maybe even more. > Unfortunately, we then will also be asked for something crude like > > y2(x1, x2) = x1 * sin(x2) > > Does this actually work at the moment? At the moment not, because there is no bracket notation on the left hand side of the equal sign at all. Jörg ```
