Symbolic Math Toolbox™ provides tools for solving and manipulating symbolic math expressions and performing variable-precision arithmetic. The toolbox contains hundreds of MATLAB® symbolic functions that leverage the MuPAD® engine for tasks such as differentiation, integration, simplification, transforms, and equation solving.
Symbolic Math Toolbox also includes the MuPAD language, which is optimized for handling and operating on symbolic math expressions. It provides libraries of MuPAD functions in common mathematical areas, such as calculus and linear algebra, as well as specialized areas, such as number theory and combinatorics. You can extend the built-in functionality by writing custom symbolic functions and libraries in the MuPAD language. All functions can be accessed from the MATLAB command line or from the MuPAD notebook interface, where you can manage and document your symbolic computations.
