Differentiation and Integration in Matlab

Symbolic expressions can allow for the evaluation of equations as shown in a previous post on symbolics. Symbolics can further be used to solve equations that vary with time or with respect to one another. Calculating this change, either as a derivative or integral, can be done implicitly using the functions ‘sym’,'diff’, and ‘int’.

Symbolic expressions and solving linear equations in Matlab

While Matlab is known for its capabilities in solving computationally intensive problems, it is also very useful in handling symbolic expressions, and further solving simple algebraic equations. In this tutorial we will investigate how to represent symbolic variables using the functions ‘sym’ and ‘syms’, solve equations using ‘solve’, and plot solutions to these symbolic expressions.
