An Excellent resource. I'm hoping someone can explain why Chapter 17 in the book, where the logic behind the orbits simulation is described, includes the Gravitational Constant in the calculations, but the constatnt doesn't appear in the code (orbits.m)? Perhaps he is using "Natural Units" where G=1, but that is only my speculation.

fibonacci(72)=806515533049393. For n>72 round-off values are shown: fibonacci(73)=1.30496954492866e+015. Both obtained by 'format long g'. Cheers

It may be missing surfer.m in the Chapter.7?
What a pity...

(correcting my previous)

orbits.m calls upon zoomer and tracer but does so through callbacks specified as strings, but those kinds of callbacks are executed from the base workspace and do not know about functions whose source is given in the same file. The fix is to switch to function handles. Change lines 214 to 219 to become

uicontrol('string','trace','style','toggle','units','normal', ...
'position',[.34 .02 .06 .04],'callback', @(src,event) tracer(), 'value',0);
uicontrol('string','in','style','pushbutton','units','normal', ...
'position',[.42 .02 .06 .04],'callback', @(src,event) zoomer(1/sqrt(2)))
uicontrol('string','out','style','pushbutton','units','normal', ...
'position',[.50 .02 .06 .04],'callback', @(src,event) zoomer(sqrt(2)))

orbits uses zoomer.m and tracer.m which appear to be missing. I think I found zoomer on an older version of this toolbox on pudn but I cannot seem to find tracer anywhere.
