1. Please let me know whether I have to specify all the global variables in
compiling a function.

In concrete, I want to compile a function posvel[i] defined as follows.
As f, x and v are globally defined variables, I do not define them as
arguments of function posvel.

posvel[i_]:= Module[ {c1 = t^2/m, c2 = t/m},
                         x[i+1][j][k] = x[i][j][k] + t * v[i][j][k] +c1 *
                         v[i+1][j][k] = v[i][j[k] + c2 * f[i][j][k]
                        ,{j, 3} ]
                      ,{k, 100}]

2. By the way, does using Module shorten the executing time?
If not, what is the candidate?
