fminsearch with three parameters

I'm trying to do an fminsearch on a function with three free variables and I get the following message :
??? Attempted to access p(3); index out of bounds because numel(p)=2.

Error in ==> @(p)lorfit(Table1,p(1),p(2),p(3))

Error in ==> fminsearch at 205
fv(:,1) = funfcn(x,varargin{:});

here's the code for my function lorfit :
function [ ansa ] = lorfit(x,G,x0,H)
ansa = 0;
for c = 1:length(x)
ansa = ansa + (x(c,2) - (H/(2*((x(c,1)-x0)^2+(G/2)^2))))^2;
ansa = sqrt(ansa);


Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Whatever code is calling FMINSEARCH is apparently calling it with a 
starting vector that has fewer than three elements.  Set a breakpoint at 
that line of code, run it, and see what's being passed in.

Hope this helps.

Hallo, Der Versuch mein Programm "ITS_90_converter2(2,'S',1e-2,3e-5,4e-6)"  in Mathscript laufen zu lassen scheitert. Ich denke fminsearch findet die zu minimierende Funktion (myfun2) nicht, oder liegt der Fehler wo anders. Coefficients und Coefficients_invers2 liefern keine Probleme. Oftmals h�ngt sich die Software auch auf und muss neu gestartet werden! Eingabe Parameter wie oben, Matlab antwortet:ans =  273.9756F�r ein Tipp w�re ich sehr Dankbar!

Vista Home Premium- Three and half months later
For a while, I wanted to try Vista on my home PC but few things were holding me back. I had heard there were no Vista drivers for my Canon scanner. The OS was a bit too expensive and finally the whole EAX-Alchemy support (or the lack of) for Audigy2 had left me a bit unintrested. Then two things happened that made me try the new OS. The local Frys Electronics started selling a 300GB SATA2 hard-disk for $69 - a perfect way to try out Vista by setting up a dual boot. Secondly, I found out that pretty much any version of Vista can be installed without having a valid key and be tried for four mont...

template object as a template parameter ?
Hi guys, i give up finding a solution by reading or by trial & error. Hope, YOU can help me! (Sorry for my rather long posting.) Stroustrup says, that templates could be declared with - type parameter, e.g. template<class T> - parameters with *simple* types like int, e.g. template<int size> - template parameter, e.g. template< template<class> class A > the latter beeing a type specifier, not an instance of A. So, there is no way to declare a template class with an *object* of my own (template) class A ?? I want to declare a template class giving it ...

fminsearch and bounded variables
Hi, I have to minimize a function w.r.t. certain parameters, but the parameters themselves are bounded and assume values from a set of intervals. Is it possible to incorporate it in ordinary minimizer, something like fminsearch or gradient based methods? I may try to make value of function infinite when the parameters are outside the range, but I don't know how the minimizer would perform given then the function would no longer be continuous/differentiable. Thanks Chris ...

Inheritance between three classes
Hi, a very simple question. I am trying to understand inheritance using c++ and dont cee how i could use three classes to create an accounting program using inheritance. e.g one class containing members for both, and then a class for checking accounts and a class for savings. Finally could you just clarify that this is the correct use of i nheritance because i am thoroughly confused. "Wilson" <> wrote in message > Hi, a very simple question.

pdepe under fminsearch
Hi! I have this math model, with witch I have to describe the experiment. I have to find model constants. So I optimize my model, until Standard deviation of experimental and model data is less then 10e-04. Model data is calculated from a system of 2 part diff equation. So I use pdepe, which is solved under fminsearch. I have a function that looks like this: k = fminsearch(@SD, k0); k ... parametar I have to optimize SD ... Standard deviation function @SD looks like: function y = SD(k) y is gained from Experimantal vaues and Math model values math model values are gained from system of 2 pa...

Disassembling strings and turning them into function parameters
Hi, I'm pretty new to Python, to programming how would I make something where the user inputs multiple words in a string - like "connect 21 user password" or similar, and then I can split this string up to pass these arguments to a function like ftp_connect(ip, port, user, pw) etc...? I have no idea how to "break" the string up so I can get these out of it.. thanks for answers, munin wrote: > Hi, > I'm pretty new to Python, to programming how would I make > something where the user inputs m...

Not used parameter: how to disable the warning
Is there a universal method (valid for all C compilers) that avoids the compiler to generate a warning about a not used parameter of a function? I think it isn't because compiler warnings aren't regulated by the standard. So I'm wondering what could be the best or the better methods to face this situation. I tried with the following on my compiler: int sum(int a, int b, int unused) { unused; return a + b; } but it works only with a low level of warnings. Otherwise I can do: int sum(int a, int b, int unused) { unused = unused; return a + b; } ...

fminsearch with simultaneous equations
Hi, I would like to know if how would fimisearch work with a set of simultaneous equations, for example: function w=something(...)

What if wanted to minimize only the first line and use the second one as a restriction?

Coeff of Variation
hi I have 2 data sets Y1 and Y2 and I need to fit the data in Y1 to the function y1 and data in Y2 to fn y2. y1 is a function depending on parameters:a,b,c,d and a variable x y2 is a function depending on parameters:a,b,c,d,e and a variable x I have used minsearch to estimate the parameters a,b,c,d,e. Any idea of how I can obtain the coefficient of variation of each parameter and also the correlation matrix? Once you have defined your cost functional, which I would assume is some sort of least squares, you could either try deriving the gradient if it's differentiable, or try estimating...

Three questions:VCxBULK, propagation delay,and timing clock.
Hi all, Now I need some help. First I want to know a term:VCxBULK. For example, VC12BULK in STM-1. I think it is a whole payload area of STM-1which is filled with VC12. And its rate is equal to 155M. Other payloads as VC11BULK,VC3BULK,VC4BULK are the same rate as VC12BULK,155M. The difference between them is mapping structure only. What kind of testing or situation will use these payloads? You konw, in the most often testing, we use STM1/VC4BULK to test STM-1 interface. What purpose will use 1.5M,VC11BULK,2M,VC12BULK...? Next is about propagation delay.Is there any recommendation or specific...

signum fminsearch
Hi there, syms x y s m a If I get to have an expression (a function f(x,y,s,m,a)) that involves an integral. The solution of the integral includes the expression 'signum(s)' for example.

Q: processing of optional parameters (#rest) ?
Dear all, i have a procedure called fget which is inteded to take a list of optional parameters. It re formates the optional parameters and passed them to fd-execute which in turn takes these parameters as an input. What happens is that the fd-execute sees in his optional parameters the following vector #[#["@3ff031ad/7e820 ", "|DATA|", "|DATA|"]] which does not represents only a single aregument passed to fd-execute, not the arguments for a call like fd-execute( con, "fget", @3ff031ad/7e820 ", "|DATA|", "|DATA|&...
