Toolkits for matlab- missing syms and some others

  1. Apr 19, 2006 #1
    I have Matlab version 6.5 but the toolkit is MUCH different from that of the ones at school. I can't use the syms command plus many others such as poly2sym and sym2poly etc.

    Anyone know how you can update your toolkit?

    Sounds like you didn't install the Symbolic Toolbox. Use the installer to install it, assuming you have a license for it.

    Yeah I have a school license for it. The school buys em and they loan out the cd at the library, not really sure how all that works on their end but thats how i was able to get it. So i have the student version of it.

    I tried reinstalling the toolbox for it but syms still doesn't work. My professor told me that his version of the cd was doing the same thing. I didn't know if you could download different toolboxes?

    The individual toolboxes cost 300EURO each to a normal user!

    If you're after a specific program, maybe try searching for it - Mathwroks have some kind of file repository and the chances are you'll find it there... :wink:
