> A = {82     83     84     85      85     86       87     88       89
> 90      91     91    92 ....}

Try this:
A = c(18,18,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28)
B = c(82,83,84,85,85,86,87,88,89,90,91,91,92)
lenA = length(A)
lenB = length(B)
AA = rep(A, lenB)
BB = rep(B, each=lenA)
table(AA-BB)/(lenA*lenB)
