Pretty much exactly what it saysMatlab arrays are 1based so all indices have to start at (at least) one ("real positive integers" part) or be logical indices which are an array of T,F that select the subset within the array on that logic basis rather than by absolute position.

Somehow you've passed an illegal set of inputs to interp2() that has caused it to error. You can tell this by tracing back the errors to the initiating call. I don't have time at present to try to delve deeply into your code but the threeargument form of the call to interp2 assumes the V (fx) here is a set of function values that match 1:M and 1:N for the size of the array in the two dimension. I'm suspecting this probably isn't so is the root cause that confused interp2.
Study
doc interp2
and the examples carefully to see where it went wrong.
