Calculus

Symbolic differentiation, integration, series operations, limits, and transforms

Using Symbolic Math Toolbox™, you can differentiate and integrate symbolic expressions, perform series expansions, find transforms of symbolic expressions, and perform vector calculus operations by using the listed functions.

When modeling your problem, use assumptions to return the right results. See Use Assumptions on Symbolic Variables. To simplify your results, see Simplify Symbolic Expressions.
