I just want to clarify one thing. Some features are build in to Matlab, like ODE solvers or in the latest version multithread computing. Yet there are separate toolboxes provided for them. Is it that they simply provide the user with more flexibility in the given kind of calculations? Or some 'overlapping' operations from separate toolboxes - like the nlinfit command from symbolic toolbox. There is a separate curve fitting toolbox which I assume includes this optimization method.

Could someone confirm these speculations?

Thank you in advance,
Mateusz

nlinfit comes from the stats toolbox, not the
symbolic TB.

The curve fitting TB has its own capabilities
that overlap to some extent with nlinfit, as
well as the optimization TB.

Toolboxes extend MATLAB in some given
direction. In some cases there may be some
overlap. This is to be expected.
