Hello, I am doing a non linear fit, my model is like this:
a = K * quad(@(x)(besselj(1.5,x)).^2 .* x./(x.^4 + t.^2) )
fitting parameters are "K" and "t". it is working fine, but it seems to fit only "t" and gives back "K" the same as I entered as the initial value. When I change K's initial value, the same value is given back but with different "t". Why this discrimination is happening?

Assuming you use fminsearch, it will only optimize on the variable x. If you want to optimize on more than one variable, you have to make x a vector, and then replace x with x(1) and t with x(2).
If you read the lower part of the documentation for fminsearch, it will tell you this, but I myself allways mess up when doing this because I forget you can only have one variable to optimize on.
