prod computes the product of the elements of a vector or array. This is near to the definition of your Pi, but not exactly the same, e.g. you cannot define the limits equivalently.

See Matt J's comment.
I suggest to use the documentation to find out such solutions by your own. While the indexing methods are explained exhaustively (I love this term when I speak about Matlab's documentation) in the "Getting Stared" chapters, you can find the prod() function e.g. by:
docsearch product
