"??? Undefined function or method 'int' for input arguments of type 'double'."

Asked by Shing

Hi all,

I have been trying to solve this problem. To set up a e array[200 by 200] to create some mesh beam diagram. ' However,I keep on receiving this error message:

"??? Undefined function or method 'int' for input arguments of type 'double'." on the integration (int) part no matter how many times I tried.

i tried using quadgk function as searched on the net, but the same message appears.

I wish to obtain numeric integration answer, so I didn't use syms x.

Really appreciate your help !

e=zeros(200); %store the calculated value in e array 
double x;
for i=1:1:200       
for j=1:1:200
          x=i-100;
          y=j-100;
          rho=sqrt(x^2+y^2); %To generate rho values to sub into e equation
e(i,j)=double(int(cos(x)^0.5*sin(2*x)*((exp(1)^(-(9/4)*(sin(x)/sin(1.125))^2))*(besselj(1,3*(sin(x)/sin(1.125)))))*(besselj(1,2*3.142*rho*sin(x))),0,1.125));
       end
  end

 Accepted answer

You appear to be attempting to do numeric integration. int() is only for symbolic integration. There are a number of numeric integration routines such as quadgk()

Side note:

double x;

would be the same thing as

double('x');

which would convert the letter 'x' to double precision and then throw away the result.

MATLAB does not use declarations of type. Dataypes are determined by assignment.

Hi, yes. I'm trying to do numeric integration and tried using quadgk() previously. However, when I did so, I got this error: ??? Undefined function or method 'quadqk' for input arguments of type 'function_handle'. I'm not sure where it went wrong :( Please help ! Thank you in advance!

e=zeros(200);

for i=1:1:200 %range will be -100 to 100 for x column for j=1:1:200 x=i-100; y=j-100; rho=sqrt(x^2+y^2); e(i,j)= quadqk(@myfun,0,1.125);

-------------functionfile------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ function z = myfun(x)

z= (cos(x)^0.5.*sin(2*(x)).*((exp(1)^(-(9/4)*(sin(x)./sin(1.125))^2))*(besselj(1,3*(sin(x)./sin(1.125))))).*(besselj(1,2.*3.142.*rho.*sin(x))));

You used quadQk rather than quadGk
