Hi, I am trying to plot the contour of the given function with the following:
syms r x y k z
[ph,r] = meshgrid((0:5:360)*pi/180,0:.5:10);
[X,Y] = pol2cart(ph,r);
Z = X+i*Y;
J = besselj(k,l.*r);
J2 = besselj(k,m.*r);
Y = bessely(k,l.*r);
Y2 = bessely(k,m.*r);
H = besselh(k,r);
F1 = symsum((J).*exp(1i*k*ph),k,-5,5);
F2 = symsum((J2+Y2).*exp(1i.*k.*ph),k,-5,5);
F3 = symsum(H.*exp(1i.*k.*ph),k,-5,5);
pwu = nan(size(F1), 'like', F1);
mask = 0 <= r & r < 0.5;
pwu(mask) = F1(mask);
mask = 0.5 <= r & r < 1;
pwu(mask) = F2(mask);
mask = r >= 1;
pwu(mask) = F3(mask);
U = subs(pwu, {l, m}, {1.5, 3});hold on
contour(X,Y,abs(double(U)),30)
axis equal
xlabel('r','FontSize',14);
ylabel('phi','FontSize',14);
But I get the error that there too many input arguments. If I remove "double" from the 4th last line, then it says input arguments must be numeric so to be converted to a double. So which way is correct here?
Thanks!

If you type 'U' in the command window you would find that it is an array of symbolic equations (or expressions I'm not too sure). I think this is happening due to the symsum in your code. This is why it's not possible to cast U into a double and why you're getting the error.

I think if you replace symsum with a function that does what you want numerically it should be possible
