tetagrados is a vector of complex numbers. So, first of all, notice that the function plot throws a warning and plots only the real parts, ignoring the imaginary ones.
Second, in this line
xlim([min(tetagrados) max(tetagrados)])
You are asking Matlab to restrict the limits of the X-axis to the min and max of tetagrados. However, tetagrados is complex, the min and max functions will return complex numbers. How can you set the limits of an axis with complex numbers? You obviously can not. So, you have an error. You should decide to work with the real part, imaginary part, or absolute values.
example:
xlim([min(real(tetagrados)) max(real(tetagrados))])
