While these functions will never win an award (they are in some cases just a line or 2), I have found them very handy for calculations where matlab functions may require a few extra steps. These functions have served me well, in particular pol2rec and rec2pol.
rec2pol(complex number) converts a complex number eg. 1-i to magnitude, angle degrees form [0.7071 -45]
the opposite function:
pol2rec(magnitude, phase) converts a polar number eg. 1 angle -45 to a complex number..
pol2rec(0.7071,-45)=1-i (could use sqrt(2)/2) to be precise)
rad2deg(radians) converts radians to degrees.
deg2rad(degrees) converts degrees to radians.
