Symbolic Math Toolbox™ uses the MuPAD® language as part of its underlying computational engine. The language has an extensive set of functions that are optimized for creating and operating on symbolic math expressions.
Since the R2016a release of MATLAB® the recommended approach is to use the MATLAB Live Editor for performing and documenting symbolic math calculations. MuPAD Notebook functionality is no longer being updated and will be removed in a future release.
Getting Started with the MATLAB Live Editor
The MATLAB Live Editor is an interactive way to create, edit, and run MATLAB code.
In a single environment your symbolic math computations are displayed in mathematical typeset, along with formatted text, multilingual text, equations, images, and hyperlinks.
You can share live scripts with others to accelerate exploratory analysis, create interactive narratives, and teach with interactive documents.
Converting MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts
You can use the MATLAB function
convertMuPADNotebook to convert your MuPAD notebooks to MATLAB live scripts. You can also open a MuPAD notebook as a live script by right clicking and selecting Open As Live Script and save this live script for later use. For further assistance converting your MuPAD notebooks, contact MathWorks Support.
MuPAD Notebook Deprecation
The MuPAD notebook will be removed in a future release. To convert your MuPAD notebook to a MATLAB live script, use the
