Error when using Max command in a function

12 views (last 30 days)
When creating a function that performs a Monte-Carlo simulation I have to find the maximum value in an array, but when I try this I get an error code that says: Error using max Invalid data type. First argument must be numeric or logical.
Here is my function:
function [ integral_approx ] = montecarlosim( a,b,y,n )
x=[a,b];
r=max(y);
v=(max(x)-min(x)).*rand(n,1)+min(x);
w=(r).*rand(n,1);
x=v;
i=find((w>=0)&(w<=y));
m=numel(i);
(m/n)*r*(b-a)
end

How are you calling this function? What are the data types and sizes of the variables?

Your function has no logical problem. Please make sure your argument y should be a numerical vector not logical.
