## How to Generate Report Automatically From Matlab

Often we have to generate reports to our boss, colleagues, and clients, etc. Generally those reports include Matlab source codes, maths equations, and possibly graphs. How do you generate your reports? writing down your equations in Word, running your matlab codes, copying and pasting the results?

It is all right to do like that, but the whole process becomes extremely simple with the cell mode in Matlab, it generates report automatically for us, any change you make regarding description, codes and results will be updated by clicking a simple button:

The following steps outline the procedure,

For a simple demonstration, I write the files as follows.

The final report is shown at http://www.mathfinance.cn/attachment/CellPublishDemo.html, looks fantastic.

**Publish to HTML**.The following steps outline the procedure,

First, opening an editor in Matlab by choosing File -> New -> M-file;

Second, selecting cell and enable cell mode in the editor;

Third, inserting cell divider under cell window, it allows you to type a name for each section, similar with the title for chapters in Word;

Fourth, depending on your reports, inserting Text Markup, where you are able to insert description text, bold text, etc. most importantly, it supports TeX equations;

Finally, clicking "Publish to HTML", a nice-looking report is generated, and if necessary, changing the codes and re-running to update the report.

%% Using Black Scholes formula as an example

% The value of a call and put options in terms of the Black–Scholes parameters

% is:

%

% $$C(S,t) = SN(d_1) - Ke^{-r(T - t)}N(d_2) \,$$

%

% $$P(S,t) = Ke^{-r(T-t)} - S + (SN(d_1) - Ke^{-r(T - t)}N(d_2)) = Ke^{-r(T-t)} - S + C(S,t)$$

%

% $$d_1 = \frac{\ln(\frac{S}{K}) + (r + \frac{\sigma^2}{2})(T - t)}{\sigma\sqrt{T - t}}$$

%

% $$d_2 = d_1 - \sigma\sqrt{T - t}$$

%% Sample code, for simplicity, I use the embedded command

[call, put] = blsprice(10,9,0.02,2,0.3);

fprintf('Call option value is %g. \n',call)

fprintf('Put option value is %g. \n',put)

call1 = [];

put1 = [];

for i = 1:10

call1(i) = blsprice(5+i,9,0.02,2,0.3);

end

%% Sample plot for demonstration only

plot(5+(1:10), call1)
