I'm working on some matrices involving symbolic expressions and calculus as well, should I start typing these matrices in Matlab and do the calculus and all the calculations in Matlab, and then use the Latex command to transfer the results to Latex, or should I start by typing all the matrices in Latex and copy those to Mathematica (I'm thinking of wolfram online) I heard that it can take Latex command, which way do you think guys in more efficient.
I am not a real expert in this area but I give it a try.
I don't think that it is important wheter you use Matlab or Mathematica - they are both professional tools.
When you say Matlab I think that you mean the Matlab toolbox MuPad which is used for symbolic math.
- Use Matlab (MuPad) or Mathematica for the math.
- Use an export-2-LaTeX feature of those tools in order to typeset the stuff. At least it minimizes the manual work - you might have to visually/syntactic optimize the code.
Here are screenshots of my (German) LaTeX tutorial showing examples. The slides are from 2011 anbd therefore probably not up to date!
