The complete error message is (remember to include it in a question, whenever an error occurs):
Error using vertcat
The following error occurred converting from double to function_handle:
Too many output arguments.

Error in solution>mart (line 123)
F = [m(1)*e(1)*w^2*cwt+c(1)*e(1)*w*swt-c(1)*e(2)*w*swt-k(1)*e(1)*cwt+k(1)*e(2)*cwt+Fz(t)

Error in odearguments (line 92)
f0 = ode(t0,y0,args{:}); % ODE15I sets args{1} to yp0.

Error in ode23 (line 106)

Maybe you mean Mt(t).

Thank you so much, I though the problem was caused by the matrix size
