I have the following problem, when defining and using a function, that's supposed to have an outside parameter xmin:

A[x_] := Exp[-x/Subscript[x, min]]
A[5]

E^(-(5/Subscript[5, min]))

What can I do about it? I do not really want to rename the parameter to xmin ;)

You could use Subscript["x", "min"] instead of Subscript[x, min] – Karsten 7. Aug 15 '14 at 11:31

Karsten.7, thank you for help! I was quite sure it is a duplicate, but the similar questions where more complicated, so I made a mistake and quickly posted the question. – user14679 Aug 15 '14 at 11:38
