Looking for something similar to \LaTeX. It is correct in this section from my textbook. The way my textbook has it is what I'm looking for:

    Use \textsc{Matlab} to get the above output. – sodd Feb 18 '16 at 19:49

Since you say you're looking for a command similar to \LaTeX, you can define something like

\newcommand{\MATLAB}{\textsc{Matlab}\xspace}

Here, I have used the xspace package to prevent the \MATLAB command from "eating" spaces after it. Maybe there is a cleaner solution, but this definitely works fine. Just add also

\usepackage{xspace}

to the preamble.

    That is a good point! I did not notice any problems using the xspace package, however, if you do, or just want to play it safe, just omit \xspace in the command definition and use \MATLAB{} every time. – Ondrian Feb 18 '16 at 20:26
