Hello All,

I have stuck in one problem, where I have variable matrix vector available and I want to extract the coefficient matrix and variable vector from that original polynomial vector matrix. For e.g. if A is matrix as:

and I want to extract its coefficients and variable vector as given below:

So my question is how to compute or Extract Matrix Y and Matrix Z from A which comprises of expressions with exponential terms of eigenvalues of system matrix.

Is there any direct command? I tried commands like - coeffs, sysvar, equationsToMatrix but in all those cases the variables are fixed.

So, please help me in solving this above problem.

Thank You.

You have not shown what you already tried or what the results were.

In R2019a, this is possible with a for loop (since coeffs apparently doesn’t like matrices):

syms lambda1 lambda2 t

A = [exp(-lambda1*t)+3*exp(-lambda2*t); -2*exp(-lambda1*t)+4*exp(-lambda2*t)];

for k = 1:size(A,1)

[Ac{k},trm{k}] = coeffs(A(k,:));

end

Cfs = [Ac{1}; Ac{2}]

Trm = [trm{1}; trm{2}]

producing:

Cfs =

[ 1, 3]

[ -2, 4]

Trm =

[ exp(-lambda1*t), exp(-lambda2*t)]

[ exp(-lambda1*t), exp(-lambda2*t)]

That may be the best you can hope for.
