Oh.
Move the initiation outside the loop then store new values into the desired location(s) in the array inside the iterative portion (the loop iow). To do that you don't need to subscript B1 at all other than to address individual elements therein if required. But, if you can vectorize the computation of B1 then there's no need for the indexing.
Are you needing to save all iterations to the bitter end?
