MATLAB is a high-level language and environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.

MATLAB Symbolic Algebra and Calculus Tools introduces you to the MATLAB language with practical hands-on instructions and results, allowing you to quickly achieve your goals. Starting with a look at symbolic variables and functions, you will learn how to solve equations in MATLAB, both symbolically and numerically, and how to simplify the results. Extensive coverage of polynomial solutions, inequalities and systems of equations are covered in detail. You will see how MATLAB incorporates vector, matrix and character variables, and functions thereof. MATLAB is a powerful symbolic manipulator which enables you to factorize, expand and simplify complex algebraic expressions over all common fields (including over finite fields and algebraic field extensions of the rational numbers). With MATLAB you can also work with ease in matrix algebra, making use of commands which allow you to find eigenvalues, eigenvectors, determinants, norms and various matrix decompositions, among many other features. Lastly, you will see how you can use MATLAB to explore mathematical analysis, finding limits of sequences and functions, sums of series, integrals, derivatives and solving differential equation.

### What youÂll learn

• How to use MATLAB to work with numeric and symbolic variables, including vector, matrix and character variables

• How to use MATLAB to handle polynomials and general algebraic expressions, factorizing, expanding and simplifying over a wide range of fields

• How to use MATLAB to work on matrix and vector functions, including all the standard matrix operations and decompositions

• How to solve equations and systems of equations using MATLAB

• How MATLAB can be used to explore mathematical analysis, by finding limits of sequences and functions, sums of series, integrals, derivatives, and solving differential equations

### Who this book is for

This book is for anyone who wants to work in a practical, hands-on manner on symbolic algebra or calculus problems with MATLAB. You'll already have a core understanding of undergraduate level calculus, algebra and linear algebra, and have access to an installed version of MATLAB, but no previous experience of MATLAB is assumed.

Designing and Developing Scalable IP NetworksToday's aggressively competitive networking market requires offering the maximum range of services using prevailing assets, not building bigger, more complicated networks, but smarter, more scalable infrastructures. It isn't an easy thing to do. The challenge is to develop an existing network so as to maximise its...   Computer Graphics and Geometric Modelling: Implementation & AlgorithmsPossibly the most comprehensive overview of computer graphics as seen in the context of geometric modelling, this two volume work covers implementation and theory in a thorough and systematic fashion. Computer Graphics and Geometric Modelling: Implementation and Algorithms, covers the computer graphics part of the field of geometric modelling and...   GPU-Based Techniques for Global Illumination Effects (Synthesis Lectures on Computer Graphics)Real-time rendering poses severe computational requirements to computers. In order to maintain a continuous looking motion for the human eye, at least 20 images need to be generated in each second. An image consists of about a million pixels, which means that for a single pixel the visible point and its color should be computed in less than 50 ns...  Biomedical Image Analysis: Segmentation (Synthesis Lectures on Image, Video, & Multimedia Processing)The sequel to the popular lecture book entitled Biomedical Image Analysis: Tracking, this book on Biomedical Image Analysis: Segmentation tackles the challenging task of segmenting biological and medical images. The problem of partitioning multidimensional biomedical data into meaningful regions is perhaps the main roadblock in the automation of...   Looking Inside Cells: Life Science (Science Readers) Connect content-area literacy and science with differentiated readers featuring lab activities and profiles of related scientitists Have you ever seen a cell? Cells are the smallest unit of life. They are called the building blocks of life. We cannot see individual cells with our naked eyes. We must use a microscope to...   Signal Processing for Remote Sensing Signal processing has been playing an increasingly important role in remote sensing, though most remote sensing literatures are concerned with remote sensing images. Many data received by remote sensors such as microwave and geophysical sensors, are signals or waveforms, which can be processed by analog and digital signal...
