I wanted to write e^(-1000|t|) in matlab title of a plot. When I entered this and ran it actually, it showed ( as a superscript and every thing else in the line in regular font. Now I wanted the whole thing -1000|t| to appear as a superscript. I tried bracketing etc and finally I achieved what I wanted by inserting ^ before every letter. Is there a better way?

    $\begingroup$ @ Seetha Rama Raju I am not sure about |t| but u can write in matlab as exp(-1000|t|) $\endgroup$ – devraj May 1 '15 at 4:32
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. That I know. I wanted the power to appear actually as power i.e. superscript. I could achieve that to with ^ before every letter. Was asking if there is a better way. $\endgroup$ – Seetha Rama Raju Sanapala May 1 '15 at 4:40
  • $\begingroup$ i don't get u. example for e^(5) in matlab it is exp(5) $\endgroup$ – devraj May 1 '15 at 4:43
  • $\begingroup$ I am not asking about computing e^5. I am asking about how to write e^(some expression) in title of a plot. $\endgroup$ – Seetha Rama Raju Sanapala May 1 '15 at 5:10
  • $\begingroup$ Try putting braces around everything you want in the exponent: e^{-100|t|)} $\endgroup$ – Conrad Turner May 1 '15 at 5:34

You can write e^(-1000*|t|) in Matlab in colored form if you want as

title('\ite^{-1000 |t|}','Color','b') Here,"b" is for blue color ,"r" for red,"g" for greeen.

For subscript use _

For superscript use ^

For exponential symbol use \ite ,

For lambda symbol use \lambda

For alpha use \alpha.
