Hi, i wonder if anyone can help on why i receive this error "??? Error using ==> plot Vectors must be the same lengths"
I want to plot a function of combination of differentiation of bessel.
m=0; k=0; omega=0:0.02:10;
a = besselj(m,omega);
da = diff(a);
b = bessely(k,omega);
db = diff(b);
c = besselj(m,omega);
dc = diff(c);
d = bessely(k,omega);
dd = diff(d);
hold all;
axis([min(omega) max(omega) -100 100]);
thanks so much

Your arguments to the the bessel functions are numeric, so you are using the numeric bessel functions and getting numeric answers. diff() applied to a numeric vector is the difference function (not differentiation) and results in a vector that is one shorter than the original. You then attempt to plot the original-length omega vector against the one-shorter difference vector.
