fk5 ~. is a formula, most likely used by a regression (or similar model). fk5 is the response variable, and the dot is a placeholder for 'whatever was on that side of the formula before'. (This is usually used for updating models.) list() places the formula in a list, obviously. It's hard to provide more meaning without the context.

(Also, mailing list etiquette suggests you should provide a more informative subject line than 'need help'.)
