I want to "map" an argument to a list of functions.

Here is the concrete Problem. I generate a list "Messungfit" of functions:

Messungfit = Table[LinearModelFit[Messungenplot[[i]], {1, x}, x], {i, NM}];

Now I want to get some more Information from one fit:


This works perfectly fine. But what if I want to do this for the whole list. That means Passing the Argument to each function. I tried something like:


This does not work.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you very much. The second one works perfectly. But Through does not work. Through[Messungfit, ["ParameterTable"]] $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @mcocdawc, both should work. You need to use: Through[Messungfit["ParameterTable"]] or Through@Messungfit@"ParameterTable" $\endgroup$

As mentioned by kglr and ilian in the comments, you can do one of two things. We can define a function that you can map over the function, i.e.

#["ParameterTable"] &

is the pure function that will accept the Head of a function, and we map this over the list of function as

#["ParameterTable"] & /@ Messungfit

Alternatively, we can use Through, which is designed to do what the OP is asking, essentially. The correct syntax is



Through @ Messungfit @ "ParameterTable"
