How to find the matrix coefficients of an equation? For example think that we have an equation of "E=A+Ax^2+Bx+Cx+Cx^2+Ay+Ay^2+By^2". We might choose a row matrix of M=[1 x x^2 y y^2]' . In order to have E=N*M, what elements of N should be? (E is 1x1 matrix, M=5x1 matrix, N=1x5 matrix). (by using MATLAB symbolic toolbox)

Solution by hand:

E=(A)*x^0 + (B+C)*x^1 + (A+C)x^2 + (A)*y + (A+B)*y^2;

Therefore;

N=[A (B+C) (A+C) A (A+B)]; (The solution)

E=N*M=[A (B+C) (A+C) A (A+B)]*[1 x x^2 y y^2]' = A+Ax^2+Bx+Cx+Cx^2+Ay+Ay^2+By^2.

Hi,

Example-

syms A B C x y

E=A+A*x^2+B*x+C*x+C*x^2+A*y+A*y^2+B*y^2;

[N,M]=coeffs(E,[x y])

How can we find the cofficient matrix from a non-linear equation ?

Note: Like equations to matrix command used for linear system of equatins. Like this what command used for non-linear equations?
