R=rk4(f,a,b,ya,M)
function R=rk4(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  - R = [T' Y'] where T is the vector of abscissas
%          and Y is the vector of ordinates
