Implicit differentiation
Posted:
Nov 7, 2010 6:09 PM


Can Matlab perform implicit differentiation?
Something like
>> diff(x^3 + y^2=4)
gives
>> (3x^2 x' + 2y y')
I could not find this info in the Doc, and the closest on the net is
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/MATLAB_Programming/Symbolic_Toolbox
but does not contain an example.
Thank you.
