I would like to find dn1/dn2 in matlab and I have two vectors n1 and n2.
How can I find dn1/dn2 the simplest way? Are there any inbuilt functions for these kind of calculations?

Perhaps you're looking for
res = diff(n1)./diff(n2); %?

Yes, the function diff works since DIFF(X), for a vector X, is [X(2)-X(1) X(3)-X(2) ... X(n)-X(n-1)].
Many thanks!
I knew it was simple.

Do you want to calculate the derivative of one vector according to the other? Do you expect the result to be a matrix? Or are you looking for the GRADIENT command?

It's not clear to me how this relates to the original question. Please post this (with a lot more information about what you're trying to do) as its own question, not as an answer on an existing question.
