Companion software to accompany the book "Numerical Methods Using MATLAB"

R=rk4(f,a,b,ya,M)
```function R=rk4(f,a,b,ya,M)

%Input    - f is the function
%            - 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

%If f is an M-file function call R=rk4(@f,a,b,ya,M).
%If f is an anonymous function call R=rk4(f,a,b,ya,M).
