Even if there is some arcane input output relationship between these two arrays it's fairly poor programming to try and force some sort of mathematical formula to describe it. With hardware resources being a mostly insignificant concern these days clarity is a more important property of good code. how about this statement... (in C) j = switch { case 1 : 2; case 2 : 5; case 3 : 3; case 4 : 1; case 5 : 4; default : printf(stderr, "Undefined input\n"); } or a more typical way of doing this is with an array. int f = {2,5,3,1,4}; j = f[i+1]; Last edited by romsek; August 26th, 2016 at 08:47 AM.

If one really wish to write a formula for it, maybe $\displaystyle j = \frac{5}{6}i^3  7\tfrac{1}{2}i^2 + 19\tfrac{2}{3}i  11$ works.

2+3*(i1)5/20*(i1)(i2)+5/6*(i1)(i2)(i3). we use finite differences of Newton method of polynomial interpolation.
