I'm trying to solve this equation with MATLAB however - I am not sure where do I get S - the integration variable - from. MATLAB keeps telling me it is an undefined variable. How do I solve this kind of equation with an unknown integration variable? Thanks! Last edited by skipjack; March 17th, 2017 at 01:06 PM.

If this integral had a closed form you wouldn't have to deal with $s$ at all but it doesn't appear to and thus you're going to have to evaluate it numerically. In this case you'll obtain values of $s$ by partitioning the interval $[0,t]$ in some fashion according to the numerical integration algorithm you are using. What data do you have exactly? Do you have time samples of $c_f(t)$ ?
