You missed a multiplication operator * in (line 23)
Y = [a*b*c-181;2(a*b+a*c+b*c);a^2+b^2+c^2];
It should be
Y = [a*b*c-181;2*(a*b+a*c+b*c);a^2+b^2+c^2];

Hi everyone,
Matlab gives the same error for the below line code because of the script in first parenthesis. - (1-x1.)^2-
f = @(x1,x2) (1-x1.)^2+100*(x2.-x1.^2)^2
