Integration in One and Several Variables. Applications

Integrals

MATLAB includes a specially designed group of commands which allow you to work with integrals in one and several variables. The program will attempt to find primitive functions, provided they are not too algebraically complicated. In cases where the integral cannot be calculated symbolically, MATLAB enables a group of commands that allow you to approximate the integrals using the most common iterative methods.

The following table lists the most common MATLAB commands used for integration in one and several variables.

syms x, int(f(x), x) or int('f(x) ', 'x')

Computes ...
