As an alternative you could make an optimization routine for K only. That way you would not need fminunc. It would look very ...

well not exactly. the function returns the value for 'return'. and solve tries to set this value to 0. when return = 0 your syst...

sorry i didnt mean 1-to1 mapping, but i meant that you can get an explicit expression of p in terms of tau

the solver tries to find the solution "result=0" and does so by adjusting tau. i dont know what you dont understand about that. ...

result' is the function value that fzero tries to equalize to zero: tau=f(p) => tau-f(p)=0. that's it.

I dont understand the error yet. I also get it. My code is: When i run the thing i get the following error message: ??? The c...
