Math-related updates

  • The Gradient Operator, which returns the gradient of a scalar function with respect to defined variables both numerically and symbolically.   
  • The addition of the pdesolve function in the Solve Block
  • Enablement of symbolic solutions for Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE). Users can now solve first-order ODEs and higher-order ODEs that can be reduced to first-order systems. 
  • Users can now symbolically solve a system of equations inside a Solve Block using the find Function. 
  • New Logarithmic Integral Functions and Elliptic Integral Functions 
  • Calculus Operators such as derivatives, limits, integrals, and summations used symbolically have been improved and cover expanded use cases. 
  • The functionality and use cases for several symbolic Keywords and Functions have been expanded upon. For example, users can use the assume Keyword to specify assumptions about a function’s result.

Productivity and usability enhancements
