MATLAB® provides many functions for performing mathematical operations and analyzing data. The following list summarizes the contents of this collection:
|Matrices and Linear Algebra
||Describes matrix creation and matrix operations that are directly supported by MATLAB. Topics covered include matrix arithmetic, linear equations, eigenvalues, singular values, and matrix factorizations.
|Polynomials and Interpolation
||Describes functions for standard polynomial operations such as polynomial roots, evaluation, and differentiation. Additional topics covered include curve fitting and partial fraction expansion.
|Data Analysis and Statistics
||Describes how to organize arrays for data analysis, how to use simple descriptive statistics functions, and how to perform data pre-processing tasks in MATLAB. Additional topics covered include regression, curve fitting, data filtering, and fast Fourier transforms (FFTs).
||Describes MATLAB functions that work with mathematical functions instead of numeric arrays. These function functions include plotting, optimization, zero finding, and numerical integration (quadrature).
||Describes the solution, in MATLAB, of initial value problems for ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and differential-algebraic equations (DAEs), initial value problems for delay differential equations (DDEs), and boundary value problems (BVPs) for ODEs. It also describes the solution of initial-boundary value problems for systems of parabolic and elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs). Topics covered include representing problems in MATLAB, solver syntax, and using integration parameters.
||Describes how to create sparse matrices in MATLAB, and how to use them in both specialized and general mathematical operations.
|Nondouble Data Types
||Describes how to perform operations on nondouble data types in MATLAB.
