## anonymous 3 years ago How to write symbols in matlab editor ( for example i want to write the symbol gamma)

1. anonymous

You want symbols in the script? I don't think it's possible in the script editor but it's possible symbols in xlim and ylim and title

2. anonymous

Let me try it out.

3. anonymous

\gamma represents the symbol gamma

4. anonymous

These are the only special characters that Matlab use. http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/specialcharacters.html

I forgot. You can use symbolic math toolbox if you have it installed.

Here's the symbolic math documentation. http://www.mathworks.com/help/symbolic/creating-symbolic-variables-and-expressions.html

9. anonymous

Yup. Do you have symbolic math toolbox installed? If you don't, you can't use it in your scripts.

no

Then only certain functions support symbols. I can only recall text, xlim, ylim and title support symbols.
