CHAPTER 3

Basic MATLAB Functions for Linear and Non-Linear Optimization

3.1 Solutions of Equations and Systems of Equations

MATLAB allows you to solve equations and systems of equations using the commands below:

 solve(‘equation’, ‘x’) Solves the equation in the variable x. syms x; solve(equ(x), x) Solves the equation equ (x) in the variable x. solve(‘eq1,eq2,…,eqn’, ‘x1, x2,…,xn’) Solves n simultaneous equations eq1,…, eqn (in the variables x1,…, xn). X = linsolve (A, B) Solves A * X = B for a square matrix A, where B and X are matrices. x = nnls (A, b) Solves A * x = b in the sense of least squares, where x is a vector (x ≥ 0). x = lscov(A,b,V) Solves A ...
