How do I define my state matricies as an anonymous function?
An anonymous function of what variables?

For example
B = @(I1,L)[0 0
1/(I1) 0
0 0
0 0
0 -1/L];
B(2,1)
ans = 5×2
0 0 0.5000 0 0 0 0 0 0 -1.0000

%B is 5x2
%u is 2 x 1
%so Bu should be 5 x 1
Bu = B*u;
%A is 5 x 5
%x is made 5 x 1
%so A*x(:) will be 5x1, which can be added to the 5x1 Bu
myfun = @(x) A*x(:) + Bu

Referring to your other post: ode45 is running an infinite loop (it isn’t actually, since switching from ode45 to ode15s solves that problem, as my solution demonstrated), I doubt if you can put that entire function in an anonymous function, at least efficiently. I would just leave it as it is.
However, if you want to define those functions to use them with the Control System Toolbox, ‘A’ for example would be:
A = @(N, k_h, c_aero, I1, I2, c_t, k_t, k_b, R, L) [0 1 0 0 0
(-N*k_h)/(I1) -c_aero/(I1) k_h/(I1) 0 0
0 0 0 1 0
(N*k_h)/(I2) 0 -k_h/I2 -c_t/I2 k_t/I2
0 0 0 -k_b/L -R/L];
You could do the same sort of operation for the others, if you want to. (Be sure all the variables in the function are accounted for in the argument list.)
Your function runs and integrates appropriately with ode15s, so I would be tempted to just leave it as it is unless you want to do something else with its components (such as use them with the Control System Toolbox). All the necessary variables would need to be present in your calling script workspace.

The input should be defined for in order for the anonymous function to work properly in MATLAB.
