Output additional vectors from ode45

3 views (last 30 days)
I am calculating concentrations and radii at all the timesteps within the ode45 loop. What is the best way to output all that information?

As diagrams? In 2 or 3 D? As text files? As binary files?

Adding additional outputs is permitted, providing that they are not used in the ode45 call. Normally, this is not a problem, because unless more outputs are requested in the calling script or function, only the first output is used.
The only way to recover them is to use the returned independent variable (usually time) vector and the solved dependent variables in a for loop and save the other desired output at each step of the loop.
tspan = [0 10];
ic = [0.1; -0.1];
[t,y] = ode45(@odefcn, tspan, ic);
for k = 1:numel(t)
[~,radii(k,:)] = odefcn(t(k),y(k,:));
yyaxis left
yyaxis right
plot(t, radii)
function [dy,radius] = odefcn(t,y)
dy = zeros(2,1);
radius = hypot(y(1),y(2));
dy(1) = y(1);
dy(2) = radius * cos(y(1)) * sin(y(2));

I am caluculating a value for a parameter eg radius at each time step in ode45. At the end I want to output all radius at all time t

In other words I just want to add an additional output argument in addition to the default y and t
