My problem is that I get the error "integrand F must return a single,

real-valued vector of the same size as the input" even when the integrand

DOES return such a vector. I am using quadcc because I have infinite limits

of integration and a piecewise-defined integrand. Things will execute

correctly if I just use quad, but I'm not sure whether or not the answer

will be trustworthy since the documentation recommends other integrators for

infinite bounds and nonsmooth functions.

I call the following within a function:

Vsame = @(x) Vsame_fit(x./lB);

F0011 = @(x) (1-(x.^2)/2).*exp(-(x.^2./2));

integ_F0011same = @(x) F0011(x).*Vsame(x);

integ_F0011same(linspace(1,3,10))

Fsame(1,1,2,2) = quadcc(integ_F0011same,0,Inf);

I defined the constant lB elsewhere. Outside that function I have defined

Vsame_fit:

function y = Vsame_fit(q)

for k=1:length(q)

if q(k)<0.022913

y(k) = 0.98*tanh(200*q(k));

elseif q(k)<0.50274

y(k) = 1/(0.9*q(k)+1);

elseif q(k)<21.598

y(k) = 1/(1.046*q(k)+0.9266);

else

y(k) = 1/(0.9512*q(k)+2.89);

end

end

end

I wrote the loop over the length of the argument to ensure that it would

return a vector. Furthermore, if I call something simple as a test like

integ_F0011same(linspace(1,3,10))

inside the function, a 10-element is returned as expected. Why am I getting

this error?

At the end of the day, I just want to have the value of the integral which I

was hoping would be saved to Fsame(1,1,2,2). The reason I have defined

things with so many separate functions, however, is that I reuse Vsame three

more times to evaluate similar integrals, e.g.

integ_F0110same = @(x) F0110(x).*Vsame(x);

Fsame(1,2,2,1) = quadcc(integ_F0110same,0,Inf);

where F011(x) was also defined with a function handle. Is there a better way

I should be doing this?
