Hi I try to solve following problem.
I try to type following equastion of XY dependence:
x= [-5,15]
a= 1
b= 12
c= 2.4
r= 1
y= -1*(a-b*(((x)-r)).^4).*(exp(-1*c*((x)-r).^2))
plot (x,y)
it should be this equation:
And it should have this shape of XY dependence
But it give me the wrong shape (like linear XY dependence).
Can anybody advise, where the mistake i?
Thank you

x = -5:0.1:15; % create a vector x, element spacing: 0.1
a = 1;
b = 12;
c = 2.4;
r = 1;
y = -1*(a-b*(((x)-r)).^4).*(exp(-1*c*((x)-r).^2));
The only difference is in the first line. In your code you evaluate y only twice, at x = -5 and at x = 15.

Instead of your definition of x, try the folowing one:
x= -5:.01:15; % array of 2001 elements, your definition were a mere 2 element array
a= 1;
b= 12;
c= 2.4;
r= 1;
y= -1*(a-b*(((x)-r)).^4).*(exp(-1*c*((x)-r).^2));
plot (x,y)
