Problem to solve this integral in matlab

  1. hello , somebody could help me to solve in MATLAB this integral?
    [tex]r(\alpha) =\frac{1}{\theta} \int_{0}^{\theta} \ e^{-jk*2Rsin(\sigma/2)sin(\sigma/2+\alpha) } \,d\sigma[/tex]
    I have tried to solve it but it gives this error :confused: :

    Warning: Explicit integral could not be found.
    > In C:\MATLAB6p5\toolbox\symbolic\@sym\int.m at line 58
    In C:\MATLAB6p5\work\directividadCurvado.m at line 12
    ??? Error: Assignment statements do not produce results. (Use == to test
    for equality.)

    Error in ==> C:\MATLAB6p5\toolbox\symbolic\@sym\double.m
    On line 45 ==> D = reshape(eval(X),m,n);

    Error in ==> C:\MATLAB6p5\work\directividadCurvado.m
    On line 12 ==> ppp=double(int(exp(-i*k*2*R*sin(x/2).*(sin(x/2)+t)),'x','0','ang'));

    please help me. Excuse me by my writing. Thanks. :smile:

    U can't solve it. Try Matlab with a simpler integral

    [tex] \int e^{\sin x} \ dx [/tex]
