E=euler(f,a,b,ya,M)
function E=euler(f,a,b,ya,M)

%Input   - f is the function entered as a string 'f'
%        - a and b are the left and right endpoints
%        - ya is the initial condition y(a)
%        - M is the number of steps
%Output  - E=[T' Y'] where T is the vector of abscissas and
%          Y is the vector of ordinates
