>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.

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]}}
