 Author Comment/Response Forum Moderator email me 10/31/00 08:45am >Hello,> >I would like to solve a function of two variables x and y and evaluate it over a range of values of x and y that I already have accumulated in lists. That is, I have separate lists of x and y values, but of equal length, and I want mathematica to substitute them into the function it generated. > >For example, > >Evaluate[Table[ f(x,y),{x, list of data for x}, {y, list of data for y}]]; > >I don't know the syntax for {x, list of data for x} <-- I think that is wrong syntax if you want to supply values of x for a function to evaluate. Please let me know how I can specify input in this case. Thank you. > >Sincerely, >Igor Barani ============ Here is one way: First the lists: In[18]:= x = Table[i, {i, 1, 3}] Out[18]= {1,2,3} In[19]:= y=Table[j, {j, 4,6}] Out[19]= {4,5,6} Then the passing the lists to the function. f is left undefined to show the passing of the variables. In[20]:= Table[f[x[[i]], y[[i]]], {i, 1, Length[x]}] Out[20]= {f[1,4],f[2,5],f[3,6]} Tom Zeller Forum Moderator URL: ,
