Using Symbolic Computations to Develop Efficient Algorithms and System Models
• Efficiency – algorithms and models expressed analytically are often more efficient than equivalent numeric implementations
• Transparency – because they are in the form of math expressions, analytical solutions offer a clear view into how variables and interactions between variables affect the result, often helping you gain important insights (e.g. conditions that result in discontinuous regions, resonant frequencies, or a critically damped response)
Through product demonstrations we will show how the notebook interface provided in Symbolic Math Toolbox makes it easy to manage and document the steps taken to derive your analytical solutions, including any assumptions made. We will also show how analytical results computed in the notebook can be integrated with MATLAB and Simulink.
