I am using the centroid command to find the centroids of polyshapes, but on the documentation I didn't find how Matlab calculates it... Somebody knows the formula used by Matlab centroid function?

I found a old paper with the formula derivation:
John K. Hall. Algorithms and programs for the rapid computation of area and center of mass. Computers & Geosciences, Volume 1, Issue 3, 1976, Pages 203-205.
