MATLAB® provides many techniques for plotting numerical data. Symbolic Math Toolbox™ expands these graphical capabilities by providing plotting functions for symbolic expressions, equations, and functions. These plots can be in 2-D or 3-D as lines, contours, surfaces, or meshes. You can create plots in Cartesian or polar coordinates. You also can create animated plots.
- Create Plots
Plot symbolic expressions, including parametric or implicit expressions, in 2-D or 3-D as line, contour, or surface plots.
- Transform Spherical Coordinates to Cartesian Coordinates and Plot Analytically
Transform symbolic expressions from spherical to Cartesian coordinates, and plot analytically.
- Tangent Plane and Normal Line of Implicit Surface
Find tangent plane and normal line of implicitly defined surface.
