Formula Rearrangement and Rewriting

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


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.

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.


If You Want to Simplify Results Further

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