SUM( { NumberSequenceList N }+ )

e.g. SUM(a1+b2)

No. it would be SUM(a1;b2)

It would be better if calc returned an error, stating incorrect syntax

In LibreOffice the behavior of the operator + and the function is not
the same in regard of cells with no numerical content.

Your question is to general. Please give a more concrete example, what
you try to calculate, what your result is and what you expect the result
should be.

The question is general because a general understanding is required!
The example concerns only integers, e.g. where a1=1 and b2=2, the
results are correct, but the question is about learning the correct
syntax so that formula entered in a calc spreadsheet will not be lost
or corrupted when the spreadsheet is opened in another odf compliant
software, e.g. gnumeric. I don't want to use a sum syntax such as
(a1+b2), which gives the correct result, but if opened in another
program, the formula is lost or gives an incorrect answer.
