Solve math problems – symbolic methods

Resources > Matlab > Solve math problems – symbolic methods

In addition to doing numerical computation or “number crunching” in Matlab, you can also do symbolic math. Doing symbolic math requires that the symbolic math toolbox be installed. Below are some examples. Also remember help available at MathWorks.

  • Symbolic examples – same examples as for WolframAlpha above
    solution, evaluation, differentiation, integration of functions
  • Example 01 – integrate an ODE from CRE Notes
  • Example 02 – solution of multiple coupled functions, evaluation and differentiation of functions
