Make an double integral function

9 views (last 30 days)
I want to make the double integration function (as per the formula shown in figure below) and then evaluate the integral for the given range of x and y. Please help me make the function.
My code is something like this but gives error:
fun = @(x,y) 1/sqrt(2*pi).*exp(-x.^2/2).*exp(-1/2.*(y+(u_j-u_m)/sigma_sq)).^2);
q = integral2(fun,y,Inf,-Inf,inf);

By putting the product inside the first pair of square brackets you've made the formula look a little bit confusing - since the only factors that depend on j and m_n are outside that parenthesized factor, but I'll give it a try...
The inner integral over x is just the error-function:
(erf(y/2^(1/2)) + 1)/2
This should give you a modified function, something like this:
fun = @(y) ((erf((2^(1/2)*y)/2) + 1))/2.*exp(-1/2*(y+(u_j-u_m)/s_n).^2);
Which for your desired values of u_j, u_m and s_n will integrate just fine from -inf to inf.
