In which case I suspect you will find that this works just as well:

def monoVarcalc(atom):

    Xaa = DS1v.get(atom)
    Xma = pt.get(atom)
    return Xaa, Xma


Unless there is something decidedly odd about the side-effects of the 
statements I've removed, since you never appear to use the values of a, 
m, Xaa and Xma there seems little point in calculation them.
