I want to plot the analytical solution of the equation given below:
for x=-1:1 and t=0:0.4:2 for as suitable values of p.
I tried to write the code as:
function adv_fourier()
x = linspace(-1,1);
% p=1;
syms n p
for i=1:numel(t)
A = @(n) (((-1)^p)*2*p*sin(p*pi*x)*exp(-niu*(p^2)*(pi^2)*t(i)))./((c^4)+8*((c*pi*niu)^2)*((p^2)+1)+16*((pi*niu)^4)*((p^2)-1)^2);
A_sum = symsum(A(p),p,1,50);
B = @(n) (((-1)^p)*(2*p+1)*cos(((2*p+1)/2)*pi*x)*exp(-niu*(((2*p+1)/2)^2)*(pi^2)*t(i)))/((c^4)+((c*pi*niu)^2)*(8*(p^2)+8*p+10)+((pi*niu)^4)*((4*(p^2)+4*p-3))^2);
B_sum = symsum(B(p),p,1,50);
S = (sinh(c/(2*niu)).*(A_sum) + cosh(c/(2*niu)).*(B_sum));
u = 16*(pi^2)*(niu^3)*c*exp((c/(2*niu))*(x-0.5*c*t(i))).*S;
grid on
hold on
But it is not genrating the desired results. Please suggest me suiable changes. Thanks

Hello Usman,
Your MATLAB code is working all good, however, I see you are not able to generate the desired results. You can get the desired results by correcting your code at B(exponential part's denominator)as
B = @(n) (((-1)^p)*(2*p+1)*cos(((2*p+1)/2)*pi*x)*exp(-niu*(((2*p+1)/4)^2)*(pi^2)*t(i)))/((c^4)+((c*pi*niu)^2)*(8*(p^2)+8*p+10)+((pi*niu)^4)*((4*(p^2)+4*p-3))^2);
The highlighted (bold and underlined) is the correction you should make for better results.
