Solving Matrix Riccati

I'm new to MATLAB and trying to use ODE45 to find the coefficients of the matrix Riccati equation for a controls problem.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I've defined my Riccati equation in a function 'regulator'

%Define matrices
function dS=regulator(t,S)

A=[0 1;0 -2.972];
Q=[(1/(pi^2)) 0;0 30];



Then I'm just going straight to ODE45, doing something like this:

[t,S]=ode45('regulator',[0 5],[0 0;0 0])

looking for a solution to matrix S.

Can I solve like this or do I have to multiply out all the terms of S? Assuming S is

S = [s11(t) s12(t) ; s12(t) s22(t)];

Any help would be appreciated.
