how i can create a handle function(polynomial) or symbolic function (polynomial) with a uncertain vector?

for example i give a [1 2 3] or every other vector and i would my code convert that to

oh i can do this
if true
f=char(DocPolynom([1 2]));
fh = str2func(st);
ans =

Ugh. I would point out that DocPolynom is not actually included in MATLAB by default. Then you use str2func to create a function handle, so sort of equivalent to using eval to generate a function from a string.

If you want a good reason to NOT use DocPolynom here:
DocPolynom([1/3 1/6 1/7])
ans =
0.33333*x^2 + 0.16667*x + 0.14286
See that DocPolynom did NOT supply the correct coefficients there.
In fact, ANY string version of the coefficient for most floating point numbers will not in fact be the actual number stored in MATLAB. So, try this:
ans =
0.142857142857143 == (1/7)
ans =
7*0.142857142857143 - 1
ans =
The point is, when you convert coefficients to strings, you lose precision. When you convert them to strings with 5 significant digits, you may well get total crapola.
coeffs = rand(1,10)
coeffs =

>> f=char(DocPolynom(coeffs));
fh = str2func(st)
fh =
>> fh(1:5)
Error using ^
Inputs must be a scalar and a square matrix.
To compute elementwise POWER, use POWER (.^) instead.
Error in @(x)0.39902*x^9+0.047401*x^8+0.34237*x^7+0.73597*x^6+0.79468*x^5+0.54491*x^4+0.68622*x^3+0.89363*x^2+0.054792*x+0.30366
Note that the function handle created using the output of DocPolynom is NOT vectorized.
>> fh(1)
ans =
>> fh(5)
ans =
Ok, so it looks like fh is getting about 5 significant digits correct there. But I can also give an example of a simple polynomial that will fail by far worse.

v = [1 2 3];
As a symbolic polynomial...
syms x
sp = x.^(0:(numel(v)-1))*v.'
sp =
3*x^2 + 2*x + 1
As a function handle that uses polyval:
f = @(x) polyval(flip(v),x);
ans =
1 6 17 34 57 86
As you can see, it is even vectorized. Note that I had to flip the coefficients vector, since polyval presumes the coefficients start from the highest order term, then go in decreasing order.
Of course, you can just use polyval directly too.
If you want to, it is not even that difficult to avoid use of polyval completely, but I'll stop here, as this does answer your immediate question.
