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?
