Dear David,
thanks for your reply. The paste() meant to paste the vectors vec1 and vec2 together, so main should be a vector of length 3 of the form
"a 1", "b 2", "c 3" # with b being tilde(b)
However, with c() it is a vector of length 6:
expression("a", tilde(b), "c", "1", "2", "3")
Do you know a solution for that?
Cheers,
Marius
