Well, you've just defined it above. So, what do you mean by "create" it? If you mean plot it, then at the MATLAB command line type:

doc polar

You may also want to look at:

doc cart2pol
doc pol2cart

or some of the others at the bottom of the help document in the "See also" section.

You might also search the MATLAB FEX at:


There are programs for "plot a cylinder" and "draw a cylinder" to name a few.
