## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi!

I have an array that is 1 column by many rows, of which each element represents a time. I want to find variable f at each time, where f is defined as follows:

if t < tp

f=(sin((pi*t)/(2*tp)))^2;

if tp < t < ts

f=(cos((pi*(t-tp))/(2*(ts-tp))))^2;

otherwise f=0

I've tried defining f as above in a .m function file (called elastance), and then using f=arrayfun(elastance,t) to find f at each time, but that doesn't work (It says, "Error in ==> elastance at 5, if t < tp".) Just typing the above function directly into the command window doesn't work either, whether or not I put it in terms of t or (t.).

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
