Matlab plot discussion- reg

  1. Jul 11, 2011 #1
    Dear friends
    I M. Saravanan, currently working in matlab attempting to plot some solutions of the differential equations.
    When plotting I received a command "Warning: Matrix is singular to working precision" for the solution step in the M files. Since as a beginner this statement make me to proceed further.
    The solution involves a lot of parameter so that by tuning the parameter I could get the plot.

    Also another command which I received is "Nan".

    I could be benefit enough if someone could be help me in this regard.

    The warning tells you that you probably divided by zero somewhere (or did another similar operation). The NaN (not a number, and not the delicious naan bread) you see in your results is confirmation of this. I'd suggest using the debugging features to set some breakpoints, or step through your m-file and debug your code:
