# Formula Rearrangement and Rewriting

Transform expressions to a particular form or rewrite them in specific terms

### Note

MuPAD® notebooks will be removed in a future release. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.

To convert a MuPAD notebook file to a MATLAB live script file, see `convertMuPADNotebook`. MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, although there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.

 `collect` Collect terms with the same powers `combine` Combine terms of same algebraic structure `denom` Denominator of a rational expression `expand` Expand an expression `factor` Factor a polynomial into irreducible polynomials `factorout` Factor out a given expression `isolate` Isolate variable or expression from equation `lhs` Left side of equations, inequalities, relations, intervals, ranges and tables `rhs` Right side of equations, inequalities, relations, intervals, ranges and tables `normal` Normalize an expression `simplifyFraction` Normalize an expression `numer` Numerator of a rational expression `partfrac` Partial fraction decomposition `radsimp` Simplify radicals in arithmetical expressions `simplifyRadical` Simplify radicals in arithmetical expressions `rationalize` Transform an expression into a rational expression `rectform` Rectangular form of a complex expression `rewrite` Rewrite an expression

## Examples and How To

Choose Simplification Functions

Most mathematical expressions can be represented in different, but mathematically equivalent forms.

Convert Expressions Involving Special Functions

MuPAD provides many special functions commonly used in engineering and science.

## Concepts

If You Want to Simplify Results Further

When simplifying a complicated expression, MuPAD can return results that would benefit from further simplifications.
