smart function to switch functions

2 views (last 30 days)
Suppose I want to tune different ode solvers to run:
ode23(@fun,...)
I want to use 'odesolver' so that
odesolver(@fun,...) actually runs ode23(@fun,...) when specifying odesolver=='ode23' and runs ode45(@fun,...) when specifying odesolver=='ode45'. Is there a smart way to do it?

You could use STR2FUNC:
str = 'ode23';
odesolver = str2func(str);
odesolver(@fun,..)
or simply use FEVAL:
feval(str,@fun,..)

You could set up a function with a switch statement, something like:
function odesolver(@fun,odesolverStr)
switch odesolverStr
case 'ode23'
ode23(@fun)
case 'ode45'
ode45(@fun)
otherwise
error('Incorrect ode solver specified.')
end
end

Thank you very much. But I accepted the answer that is shorter

If you're using a sufficiently recent release (release R2023b or later) use the ode object and specify the Solver property to tell the object which ODE solver to use.

The ode object was introduced in release R2023b. It doesn't exist in earlier releases. There isn't a way to "automatically have MATLAB decide which ODE solver to call" in earlier releases.
