You have a function for E that you can use to generate E_k0. Change your expressions for k, k30, and k0 into functions then call those functions in your phi_33 function.
k = @(k2, k3) sqrt(k1.^2+k2.^2+k3.^2); k30 = @(k2, k3) k3 + beta.*k1; k0 = @(k2, k3) sqrt(k1.^2+k2.^2+k30.^2); phi_33 = @(k2, k3) (E(k0(k2, k3))./(4*pi.*(k(k2, k3).^4))).*(k1.^2+k2.^2);
Note that saying E(k0) would NOT be sufficient; E doesn't operate on a function handle but on a numeric value, and so you need to evaluate the k0 function and pass the result it returns into the E function.
k1 also needs to be defined before you define ANY of these functions; the function handles will "remember" the value of k1 that existed when they were created.
