For some N (like 2,5,10) m is just 1 (second element of C is already greater than the root of N) and so your calculation of the rearranged vector c fails. Either include another if-statement to cope with that case (then c<--C) or do it completely different like in the attached.

Looking at Numerical Recipes, I think you need to add a correction factor in for when w[0,1 is zero.

Unfortunately, I'm Mathcadless for a week or so, but you can define your function as follows.

Rename my function to PellA.

Define

Pell(n):=p <-PellA(n, infinity)

stack (p[1, p[2)

thenPell(P181).

Hello Everyone again,

Now I need help with correcting the Pell_Test(N) function, the above. ("This array index is invalid for this array")

Best Regards.

I greatly appreciate your help. The answer is very neat . Many, many thanks, Werner.

By the way, I need help with how to type "the thin equal sign" (the green circle) in Mathcad 14.

Best Regards.

Same way as the * and the +. If you create a math region and you type Ctrl-Shift-K (cursor gets red as in a text region) you can use literally any character in a variable name. Pressing Ctrl-Shift-K again brings you back to normal mode. That way you can use characters in variable names which normally would be taken as operators. The sam way you can also insert some spaces instead of using the underline character as you had done.

I guess the Pell_Test(N) function need to adjust a little bit :

after adjusting a little bit :

And while I am learning about match( ) , submatrix( ) function, I adjust the function a little bit :

Thanks again.

Best Regards.
