[R] Returning data in matrix form

I am trying to perform the following calculation for a very
large time series data set:


data.frame.a and data.frame.b are of the same dimension, and I wish to
perform the calculation in one step so that "x" is returned as a
matrix/data.frame of equal dimension.

I have tried a couple of methods for this, (subsetting data.frame.a and
data.frame.b and performing the calculation on a column by column basis
for instance, and trying to loop a function over column data), but each
time I am returned with a list for x rather than a data frame.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, I have looked through some R
literature but don't seem able to find the answer.

Thank you for any help.
