Runge-Kutta 4th order method
Wow, you haven't given us too much to go on, so that makes a real challenge. First up, your 2nd order ODE is needlessly comple...

Close-loop TF Calculation
You need a few multiplies. s = tf('s') Gc= 32.8802*(s+3)/s/(s+7)/(s+8.52) Now you can perform step or bode or whatever.

How to obtain regression polynomial equation with more than 2 independent variables with degree 5.
OK, the fitting is easy, the plotting less so. Since you didn't give us too many hints, not did you give us any data to work wit...
