Define symbolic function by calling another vector with embedded symbol

2 views (last 30 days)
I need to define a symbolic function but am embedding the symbol in a separate matrix. As a result, when I try to define the new function, I am not explicitly calling the symbol in the code. I get the following message:
"Error using sym/subsindex (line 796) Invalid indexing or function definition. When defining a function, ensure that the arguments are symbolic variables and the body of the function is a SYM expression. When indexing, the input must be numeric, logical, or ':'."
Specifically, what I want to do is define hh1_zz below as a symbolic function. Here is the code you would need to understand what I want to do:
All parameters that are not "symbols" are numeric values defined in earlier parts of the code:
syms zz_u zv_u zb_u vz_u vv_u vb_u bz_u bv_u bb_u zz_l zv_l zb_l vz_l vv_l vb_l bz_l bv_l bb_l

tu2 = [reshape(tu2_u,[],1); reshape(tu2_l,[],1)];
hh1_zz(zz_u, zv_u, zb_u, vz_u, vv_u, vb_u, bz_u, bv_u, bb_u, zz_l, zv_l, zb_l, vz_l, vv_l, vb_l, bz_l, bv_l, bb_l)...
= u1(tau_u(1,1),Y1(1,1),Y2(1,1),gamma(i)/G1(1,1)) + delta*lzz1*tu1;
The last line calls all of the symbols in vectors tau_u(1,1) and tu1 but is where the error prevents me from proceeding.
