Can anybody teach me how to compile a function of several variables which
are values of other functions. For example, I have a function
f[x_, y_]:= alpha[x] + alpha[y] - beta[x]/beta[y].
The alpha and beta function values are known. The reason I need to compile
this function is because I have to iterate this illustrative function many
many times. Each iteration helps to update the functions alpha and beta.
A typical computation, involving in the order of 50 iterations, takes
several (4-5!) hours in PowerMac 7200/120 (Mathematica version 3.0) (Student
version). I believe that compiling can reduce the time considerably. [The
above was just a toy example of the actual functions involved.]
How can I compile a function like the above? Thank you.
