No clue what you're trying to do.

D is a built-in symbol for differentiation, so you can't write

D[x,s]=(anything)

Even if you could, what could

D[x,s]=D[x,s]

possibly accomplish, since both arguments to Set are the same?

Beyond that, there's no construct like

function[anything] {anything else}

And the list goes on.
