    perhaps whenever x is odd add one to y ?

    \(\Large \color{purple}{ 1) x + 1,y + 1 }\) \(\Large \color{purple}{ 2) x + 1, y }\) It keeps repeating.

    Well I actually got it from a while loop, and I wanted to know if I can translate it to a mathematical expression.

    No, you have to use the programming if - else, or while - do

    should be like (n,n/2) when n is even and (n,n/2+1) when n is odd how to combine them (you using python?)

    I ask because I am learning python and wanted tips if No-Data is an expert ..sort of a separate Q

    This is what it does: x = 0, y = 0 y = x - y x = x + 1

    Sorry Turing I'm not a expert, I'm actually learning some Java, but I got distracted with this thing hehe.

    what you have typed up is already a recurrsive definition; and it might have to be piecewise defined to be explicit as has already been pointed out

    There is no way of expressing it without in the piecewise way?. I'm so fool because I can't see it from the code =/

    if you are trying to confine yourself to a limited method, your going to be limited in your results .... the piecewise functions are real and useable function ... as is it looks like y is increaseing at half the rate of x, and if you can use a ceiling or floor function to weed it up or down as needed, you might be able to code it up sufficiently with a 0,0 condition as separate

    if we ratio it out: \[1,2,1\frac{1}{2},2,1\frac{1}{3},2,1\frac{1}{4},2,1\frac{1}{5},2,1\frac{1}{6},...\]

    \[f(x')=1+\frac{1}{x};\ x\in Odd\]\[f(x')=2;\ x\in Even\] prolly bad notations, but the slope of each discrete point would be something like this

    1 + 1/n maybe better; for x in Odd

    I just thought it would be easier to do without piecewise functions, but now I see it is not.
