```Maybe you whould try:

One of your problems is that you are rewriting the resoults so that the
resoult you get is only for the final combination of m, s, y.

Secondly, I am not sure if you want to use in the equation elements of m, s,
y, or the whole vectors.

function (m,s,y)

{
DIC.hat<-NULL
for (j in m){

for (k in s){

for (i in y){

DIC.hat<-cbind(DIC.hat,c(m=j,s=k,y=i,DIC.hat=sum(-2*((log(1/sqrt(2*pi*k^2))*exp((((i-j)/k)^2)/-2)))))

}

}

}

DIC.hat

}

Best,
