Hi All,


I want to make the output "u = u + alpha*d_k" at the very end of this code an input, i.e., as an argument of the function "f(u)" at the beginning of the code, in every iteration. Note that I have posted only part of the code which can easily aid in explaining the problem.

Anyone with idea how to do this?

I have no idea what you mean by your question. How is line 145 now an "output"? It looks like a calculation. There's no print statement, no return statement so nothing is being put "out".

What do you man "make it an input"? Input is data that comes into the program from somewhere (file, keyboard, ...).

You could call f with the value of the calculation on line 145: f(u+alpha*d_k) but your f function is pretty useless as shown; though I suppose that is a simplification of the real f .

Thank you griswolf. By Input, I meant the value of u = fromfunction(u_initial_function,(M,)) to be updated/replaced by u = u+alpha*d_k in every iteration. Sorry for such a confusion.
