(sorry for the threads...I am a new follower of this site!) I would like to ask you one more question: Previously, I had the code and a parameter "n" as an input in order to find the parameter Pu: output! Now, from experiments I know the real value of the parameter Pu, is it possible to find from the code the parameter n ( as an output) if I give the Pu as an input? could I "invert" the code?? Thanks in advance!
