Symbolic Computations in MATLAB

Symbolic variables, expressions, functions, conversions between symbolic and numeric

Symbolic Math Toolbox™ enables you to perform symbolic computations from the MATLAB® command line by defining a special data type — symbolic objects. Functions are called using the familiar MATLAB syntax and are available for integration, differentiation, simplification, equation solving, and other mathematical tasks. Symbolic computations augment the numeric capabilities of MATLAB. You can convert symbolic results to numeric results and use them outside Symbolic Math Toolbox.
