Solve Command
The Symbolic Toolboxs solve command is used to
solve both transcendental and algebraic equations
solve(f) solves f in terms of the independent symbolic
variable closest to x. f must be a symbolic expression
or a entered as a text string enclosed by single quotes
solve(f1,f2,...,fn) is used to solve multiple
equations by separating the symbolic equations by
commas as follows

Poly2Sym Command
The sym2poly command converts a symbolic
polynomial expression to a polynomial coefficient
vector
The poly2sym(f) command converts a polynomial
coefficient vector to symbolic polynomial expression in
terms of the default symbolic variable x
The poly2sym(f,'v') command converts a polynomial
coefficient vector to symbolic polynomial expression in
terms of the symbolic variable v
