Symbolic Differential and Integral Calculus

Symbolic Computation with MATLAB. Symbolic Variables

MATLAB’s Symbolic Math Toolbox module allows you to easily manipulate and operate on formulae and expressions symbolically. It is possible to expand, factor and simplify polynomials and rational and trigonometric expressions; find algebraic solutions of polynomial equations and systems of equations; evaluate derivatives and integrals symbolically; find symbolic solutions of differential equations; manipulate powers, limits and many other facets of algebraic series. To do this, MATLAB first requires that all variables (or algebraic expressions) ...
