Matlab crashes but Octave doesn't

2 views (last 30 days)
The program below runs in Octave but crashes Matlab 2014. Mathworks won't help because my contract has run out. Any ideas would be helpful.
X = [1 , 2 ,3 , 4 ,5];
Y = [1,4,9,4, 1];
xdata = X(:);
A = [xdata.^2, xdata, ones(size(xdata))]
b = log(Y(:));
x = A\b
mu = -x(2)/x(1)/2;
sigma = sqrt( -1/2/x(1) );
A0 = exp(x(3)+mu^2/(2*sigma^2));

Apple made changes to MacOS that prevent older versions of MATLAB from running. (See my previous remarks about external interfaces...)

What happens if you do the A\b differently? E.g., doing the LU decomposition manually and then backsolving yourself? Or doing pinv(A)*b?

If you need it in MATLAB, then pay the money and upgrade. It doesn't crash for me on R2018b. It gives:
A =
1 1 1
4 2 1
9 3 1
16 4 1
25 5 1
x =
-0.511931276922301
3.07158766153381
-2.58955627854091

Give that man a cigar and thank you very much.
pinv(A)*b work as I suspect doing the LU decomposition manually would.
