This ensures there will not be conflicts with built in symbols since Mathematica always uses an upper case character for the first character of symbol names. >And now I want to use the computed results, say x & y to define a >new variable Z=x^2+sqrt(xy). Did you mean x^2+Sqrt[x y] here? >How should I use computed x and y to define the new variable Z? z = x^2+Sqrt[x y]/.root will do what you want.
