Hello everyone,

I would like to ask you some guidelines about how to solve this equation in matlab. This is an equation for an admittance of the open ended coaxial probe.

I would like to find the coefficients $\alpha$ and $\beta$ in the equation based on my measured data, in which those parameters are known: $\epsilon_r$, s, a and Y. The upper bound (N,M,P,Q) we can choose. For example, N=M = 4; P=Q=8.

I think some kind of fitting function might address my question, but I am really new to Matlab and have no ideas to do that.

Thank you very much,

Greetings

lsqcurvefit would be one choice,

Note that your equation can be reorganized as a linear equation by multiplying through by the denominator expression involving the betas. That would likely be a good way fo developing an initial guess for the parameters.

Yes, the N and P you've passed in do not agree with the size of alphabeta. You should get in the habit of using dbstop

to probe such errors.
