=======================================
ok,you right.
my code (with correction) is as following:
my code is :
gr1 = sqrt(-100 - my_var^2);
gr2 = sqrt(-150 - my_var^2);
gr3 = sqrt(-70 - my_var^2);
% matrix elements are:
a11 = gr1.^2.*besseli(0,gr1);
a12 = -gr2.^2.*besseli(0,gr2);
a13 = -gr2.^2.*besselk(0,gr2);
a14 = 0;
a21 = gr1.*besseli(1,gr1);
a22 = -gr2.*besseli(1,gr2);
a23 = gr2.*besselk(1,gr2);
a24 = 0;
a31 = 0;
a32 = gr2.^2.*besseli(0,gr2);
a33 = gr2.^2.*besselk(0,gr2);
a34 = -gr3.^2.*besselk(0,gr3);
a41 = 0;
a42 = gr2.*besseli(1,gr2);
a43 = -gr2.*besselk(1,gr2);
a44 = gr3.*besselk(1,gr3);
A_matrix = [a11 a12 a13 a14 ; a21 a22 a23 a24 ; a31 a32 a33 a34 ; a41 a42 a43 a44];
det_A = det(A_matrix);
solving = fzero (det_A , guess);

obviously,I get this error:
??? Undefined function or variable 'my_var'.
how introduce "my_var" to matlab?
