Simplify a long expression to a shorter form


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

Use General Simplification Functions

Simplification of mathematical expression is not a clearly defined subject.

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.
