Ut=0;
while Ut<20
cn = @(q1,q2,n0)((Ut.*n0)./(1-cos(2.*pi.*q1)-cos(2.*pi.*q2)));
y = @(q1,q2,n0)0.25.*((1+cn(q1,q2,n0)).^(-1/2)+(1+cn(q1,q2,n0)).^(1/2)-2);
a = -0.5;
b = 0.5;
cv =@(n0) n0+(0.5*v(n0))-1;
x0 = 0.1;
n = fzero(cv,x0);
plot(Ut,n,'*')
xlabel('U/t')
ylabel('n0/n')
hold on
Ut = Ut + 1;
end
The plot should be similar looking like y=1/x but I am only getting a point. Anybody please help me out.

You forgot to tell us that you also get some output, namely
Warning: Reached the maximum number of function evaluations (2000). The result fails the global error test.
In @(n0)n0+(0.5*v(n0))-1
In fzero at 286
Error using fzero (line 309)
Function value at starting guess must be finite and real.
That happens when Ut = 1 (the second iteration). The integration is failing. Are you sure the integral converges?

there is something wrong with your function cv,when Ut=1,n = fzero(cv,x0);will error
