if f(x,y) be a function (x^3 * y^-4) + (x^-2 *y^3) with 2<x<10 and 1.1<y<3.5.f(0,0) = f(9,1.2). how do you develop a c program of loop(x decremented by 1 unit) with in which another loop (y incremented by 0.8(K) initially and then as the y reaches a value where incrementation by 0.8 makes y>3.4 make 0.8 to 0.8/2 and follow this till K>0.002) and the values generated are continuous.i.e the output is in the form

iteration       x      y         f(x,y)evaluated.

     the f is to be analysed and the min of the calculated values is to be given as output.
      can anyone please help me with the code for this..
      i have developed a code but its getting struck....

Please show us what you have so far as code is concerned. Where are you getting stuck?

hey...i am posting the code for which i was actually facing the problem..
here the f(x,y) is the function bhpeqns()...x is fill_s[] and y is fill_h with ranges 12<=x<=19 and 0.6096<=y<=1.8288
please help me with the following code...

i am facing the problem with kkt_optimize function

I'll assume from a previous related thread that you are using Turbo C++, which is unfortunate but I know there's nothing to be done about it (except protest to the government University Standards board, which I understand is probably futile). Therefore I'll limit my comments about the headers to a reminder that you don't actually need several of the ones you have included.

In fact, I am dismayed at how little you actually followed my earlier advice, in general. I do see a lot of improvements, but the code is still pretty much a disaster. However, if the bhpeqns() equations function now works, then that is what is most important, I suppose.

As for the ktt_optimize() function, what exactly is it doing, and where is it going wrong?

i also have some graphs to be generated for which i am using the graphics header and when i am removing any of thge other header files,the program is throwing an error..
bhpeqns is working and is also giving quite accurate results..i am basically a mechanical student and my grasp of c is not that extensive so do excuse the lengthy code..
well coming to point , the objective of optimize function is to evaluate bhp for varying values of fill_h and fill_s and the output format is to be in the form given in the initial thread of this discussion..
but it is evaluating for only one fill_h for a particular fill_s and if even the lam value is changed from 0.8 to 0.6,it shows error's of the kind(pow : error, / : error, etc).to be noted i have made all the base as well as exponents of every pow function positive in this program to negate the error..
