comment Why function cannot be defined inside For loop?
@Misery can you really use a def inside a for loop in python? Or do you mean lambdas?

comment Why function cannot be defined inside For loop?
Why was this closed? Because it was just a programming error? I have seen other examples of this in questions that are not closed. The "too localized" doesn't feel right to me. Also the rage about using a loop seems unnecessary to me. Reminds me of when people use capital letters for symbols/function names. True, but needless comments.

Ugh ... I thought those numbers where calculated ... makes more sense now. Thanks!

comment While-Loop Linear Projection
Be careful with Subscript[Cp,-1] since Cp has a value, lets say for example 10.1 then what you are really doing is Subscript[10.1, -1] which I doubt is what you want. Can you describe what you want mathematically, ie the recurrence relation you actually want to solve, and example initial values. Then it will be easy to help you get the correct code.

@NasserM.Abbasi weird ... guess it just keeps trying!

comment NDSolve and WhenEvent Causing Excess Work
@MarkMcClure for sure. I love WhenEvent so much ... it could make me have to do a back flip each time I use it and it would still keep me coming back!

comment NDSolve and WhenEvent Causing Excess Work
@MarkMcClure don't get me wrong ... your point is well taken! It would just be nice to have an extra option that would tell the maximum steps taken between events ... that way the user doesn't need to have to do any hand calculations on the number of time steps, and the predicted number of events to figure out how many maximum steps need to be taken. This will make the calculations much slower ... but seems like it will be a common need for these types of problems. Again I think of it the way old Fortran codes would have worked ... each call you get the maximum steps so it naturally scales

comment NDSolve and WhenEvent Causing Excess Work
@MarkMcClure true, but for cases that happen at regular intervals (ie Mod[t,1] etc) this is slightly counter intuitive until you understand your answer. In these cases the events are easy to detect ... but the way the solver is allocating effort is subtle since it is I imagine trying to ensure that possible local discontinuities are being handled correctly.
