Hello, I am trying to plot the transmission coefficient vs energy for the double barrier potential, but I get an error. May I know what I have done wrong here?
See the following V_0 = 0.2800; % Barrier strength in eV hbar = 1.054571596e-34; % Reduced Planck constant m = 5.465629128e-3...

Unable to find solution to matrix using Gauss Seidal code. How should I proceed to get the solution?
You are dividing by A(i,i) some of which are zero. These will introduce NaNs.

Let x=[2 4 6 8 10] and y=[1 3 5 7 9]. Compute for the vector z whose elements are equal to z= (xy+ y/x)/[(x+y)]^((y-x)) + 10^(x⁄y)
You need z = (((x.*y)+(y./x))./((x+y).^(y-x)))+10.^(x./y) % another dot here ^
