Hello,

I have the following recursive function:

$\displaystyle \beta_{kj}=\sum_{l=k-N+1}^k \frac{\beta_{l(j-1)}}{(k-l)!} I_{[0,(j-1)(N-1)]}(l)$

where $\displaystyle \beta_{00}=\beta_{0j}=1, \beta_{k1}=1/k!, \beta_{1j}=j$

$\displaystyle I_{[a,b]}(l)=

\left\{

\begin{array}{cc}

1 & a \leq l \leq b\\

0 & \mbox{ otherwise}

\end{array}

\right.$

and I tried to write it using Mathematica as following:

I have this function programmed well in MATLAB, and I use it as a reference to check the Mathematica code which fails to give correct answers. Can anyone tell me where is the error in the Mathematica code?Code:fun[m_,n_,r_]:=If [m<=r<=n,1,0];B[0,j_,N_]:=1;B[1,j_,N_]:=j;B[k_,1,N_]:=1/k!;B[k_,j_,N_]:=Sum[B[l,j-1,N]/Factorial[k-l]×fun[0,((j-1)×(N-1)),l],{l,l=k-N+1,k}]

Hint: If you write at Mathematica B[3,3,3] it must give you 4, B[2,3,3] = 4.5, B[4,4,4]=10.5 as given by using the MATLAB code.

Thanks in advance
