how to fit non linear equation with ten parameters

1 view (last 30 days)
Hi everyone,
I have to computed ten parameters in non linear equation, I tryied to use 'nlinfit' command but I obtain the following error:
Error using nlinfit (line 219)
MODELFUN must be a function that returns a vector of fitted values the same size as Y (30615-by-1). The
model function you provided returned a result that was 1-by-1.
One common reason for a size mismatch is using matrix operators (*, /, ^) in your function instead of the
corresponding elementwise operators (.*, ./, .^).
Error in C_Fourier_Analysis (line 58)
F_fitted = nlinfit(x,y,f,[1 1 2*pi*rand 1 2*pi*rand 1 1 2*pi*rand 1 2*pi*rand]);
I'm attacching the complete code and the data. Thanks.

This error is caused because vector created by this line is
x = [x1', x2'];
1*x, however, it seems that you expected it to be x*2 matrix. Changing the line to
x = [x1, x2];
will solve this issue. However, after this, there is another issue related to your function f returning inf and nan. To resolve that, you will need to check the issue with your equation.
