My function
function dydt=solver(y,t)
tspan = [0:0.01:3.12];

Are you getting an error message? If so, what?
I notice that your dydt is mising a "*" after C.

@John Masters The code works when you fix the (t,y) ordering. By the way, you can specify just the start and end time in [tspan]. YOu don;t have to tell it the time step . That results in a more efficient execution because in that case, ode45() adapts the step size as it goes, as need to achieve a certain level of accuracy. See attached image. When I used you code as is, there were 313 evenly space time steps. When I only specified the start and end
tspan = [0,3.12];
there were 105 unevenly spaced times, with a concentration around the "glitch" (staging, perhaps?). See figure below. Code attached.
