MATLAB no longer allow creation of arrays of function handles. You will need
to create a cell array.

S = {@sin, @(x) x.^2, @exp};
f = @(x) S{1}(x).*S{2}(x)-S{3}(x);
result1 = f(0.2)

% Alternately to get a cell array of values of the functions in S
g = @(x) cellfun(@(myfun) myfun(x), S, 'UniformOutput', false);
h = g(0:0.1:1)
h{1} % sin(0:0.1:1)
result2 = h{1}(3)*h{2}(3)-h{3}(3)
