Hello I am doing as you posted and calling ode45 from a different mfile. In my code I am really using a's instead of x's, does that cause a problem?So when I run the first file which is this:function da = system_ex(t,a)da(1) = -2.4712*a(1) + 0.005*a(2) + 0.56*a(3)+ 0.1*a(4);da(2) = 0.385*a(1) - 0.1002*a(2)da(3) = 0.002*a(2) - 0.6462*a(3)da(4) = 0.007*a(2) - 0.2042*a(4)It is still saying input argument 'a' is undefined.but the a(t) is what I am trying to find. In a way I think I'm defining 'a' with this file, what's wrong with this part?and for my second mfile, when I am calling ode45 it wont run probably due to 'a' function being undefined"Bruno Luong" <b.luong@fogale.findmycountry> wrote in message <kjtnkm\$ro7\$1@newscl01ah.mathworks.com>...> "richard " <richard7893@embarqmail.com> wrote in message <kjrsih\$mgb\$1@newscl01ah.mathworks.com>...> > > > > this is what I am typing into MATLAB:> > function dx = system_ex(t,x)> > dx = zeros(4,1);> > dx(1) = -2.4712*x(1) + 0.005*x(2) + 0.56*x(3)+ 0.1*x(4);> > dx(2) = 0.385*x(1) - 0.1002*x(2)> > dx(3) = 0.002*x(2) - 0.6462*x(3)> > dx(4) = 0.007*a(2) - 0.2042*x(4)> > [T,X] = ode45(@systems_ex,[0 10],[1 0 0 0])> > plot(t,x(:,1))> > > > I hope you save system_ex in an mfile and call ode45 on another mfile.
