MATLAB: Problem with undefined variable

expression as an argumentfunctionsSymbolic Math Toolboxsymbolic variables

I'd like to construct a function Q that has a symbolic expression f(u1,u2,…,ui) as an argument.
The thing is that I don't want to declare f as being an expression of symbolic variables u1,…,ui.
I want Q to do this for me: it receives some expression with u1,…,ui (without these being defined anything) and then it declares these all as symbolic.
Is this possible?

  • No, in order to do anything close to that, you would have to pass the expression as a string (or as a function handle, or as an inline function)
