@rahul-narain Yup, thats a much better option from a programming standpoint. For anyone who doesn't know what {y} means (I had to look up 'fractional part'), its the decimal part of the number, like frac(5.2) = 0.2

Ah I had tried -ln(x)/λ before but thought it wasn't working when it returned numbers greater than 1. Its interesting you can just retry until its within the needed range. Thanks!
