Adding latex equation to a Matlab Live Script and Plot the equation

16 views (last 30 days)
I have added a latex equation to a Matlab Live Script. (In the Insert tab, by clicking Equation, and selecting LaTeX Equation)
For Example, let's have a latex equation as follows:
\frac{100 (-3)}{7 \left(5 \left(4 e^{10 \left(x-\frac{y}{100}\right)}-1\right)\right)}
I think the equation is a text form.
I want to convert the equation to code form and want to plot the equation. (CTRL+E doesn't work)
Any help would be appreciated.

Hey student_md,
You can use this work flow:
  1. Copy the Latex to Mathematica.
  2. Convert it to Mathematica expression, then convert the result to Matlab expression use ToMatlab package
> input=ToExpression["x \\frac{1}{y} \\sin(x) \\sqrt{ \\frac{2}{56}}",TeXForm]
>(*load the package*)
> ToMatlab[input]
gives (1/2).*7.^(-1/2).*x.*y.^(-1).*sin(x);
Refer to : ToMatlab.m link or download directly from this attached file.
I hope this helps you. :) Happy Matlabing !

LaTeX is simply a display feature, at least so far it isn't tied to the actual code...

Also, mathematical presentation format such as LaTeX is often ambiguous as code, and needs to be interpreted according to the knowledge domain.
