 Apr13 awarded Nice Question Feb22 awarded Yearling Dec25 comment Generate nonoverlapping random circles @MarkAdler very nice. I noticed that having 'RandomReal' produce three numbers '{n,3}' and using 'Sphere' instead of 'Circle' produces perfect collections of spheres in 3D.

It provides us with a simple interface that can be understood and used by most people. Giving columns distinct, complete and reasonable names means the order of the columns does not matter and provides a named rather than a numbered access to the data. In this sense Association and Dataset provide serious progress within Mathematica. In a further step, we also named all rows, which means each cell is identified by pairs of names. Please do not forget that Excel sheets are regularly sorted. Aug12 comment Reading csv/xlsx data into Mathematica with column headings as list names An alternative way to create a Dataset is irisDataset = Dataset[Inner[Rule, header, Transpose[data], Association]].

Jul29 comment How to get grid lines at all (log) tick marks in Version 10? @Mr.Wizard Thank you very much for the hint. It actually works inside Plot. I managed to crash the kernel with some combinations but "Reverse" worked too. Jul14 answered Telling mathematica to output * instead of space for multiplication, so I can copy as plain text Jul12 comment How to get grid lines at all (log) tick marks in Version 10? Of course I agree. I am in fact very unhappy with the various Log???Plot functions. In my opinion there should be a single Plot (and a single Plot3D) function, which is supplemented by ScalingFunction->{"Lin", "Log"} or something very similar.

The collection guide/DerivedDistributions summarizes a number of other functions I was looking for.
