I try to solve a non linear system, but Fsolve can't solve it.
F=@(q)[sqrt((q(1)-5)^2 + q(2)^2 + q(3)^2 )-sqrt( q(1)^2 + (q(2)+10)^2 + q(3)^2)-Rez1;
sqrt(q(1)^2 + (q(2)+10)^2 + q(3)^2 )-sqrt( q(1)^2 + (q(2)-10)^2 + q(3)^2)-Rez2;
sqrt( q(1)^2 + (q(2)-10)^2 + q(3)^2 )-sqrt( q(1)^2 + q(2)^2 + q(3)^2)-Rez3];
q0=[50,0,0];
options = optimset('Display','iter','maxfunevals',500,'tolfun',1e-1,'tolx',1e-1,'tolcon',1e-2);
fsolve(F,q0,options)
Rez1,2,3 are some variable that I calculate before that. And the response of matlab is
I try to modify the values of tolfun and tolx, but no succes. Any help?

We donâ€™t have your â€˜Rezâ€™ constants, so we canâ€™t run your code.
However, using 0 as any initial parameter estimate results in a much more difficult optimisation.
q0=[50,-1,1];

With this initial estimate:
q0 = randi(99, 3, 1);
and assigning an output for the fsolve result:
Qv = fsolve(F,q0,options)
I get solutions that appear to converge to the same value to ‘q(1)’ and ‘q(3)’, with ‘q(2)’ less well defined:
Equation solved.
fsolve completed because the vector of function values is near zero
as measured by the selected value of the function tolerance, and
the problem appears regular as measured by the gradient.
