 Author Comment/Response Aaron Honecker 10/31/00 1:25pm >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 If you want to evaluate the function for all combinations of values for x and y you can use the following: x = {x1, x2, x3, x4}; y = {y1, y2, y3}; Outer[f, x, y] produces {{f[x1, y1], f[x1, y2], f[x1, y3]}, {f[x2, y1], f[x2, y2], f[x2, y3]}, {f[x3, y1], f[x3, y2], f[x3, y3]}, {f[x4, y1], f[x4, y2], f[x4, y3]}} URL: ,
