Chinese Lattices are popular artifacts, frequently used in Chinese windows, doors and de-corative furniture. In this paper we will look at them from an algorithmic point of view. We will be interested in developing the simplest possible algorithms that one can use to create such lattices with a computer or model them with wooden sticks. To develop these algorithms, we will use MATLAB Symbolic Math Toolbox. All algorithms in this paper will be written in the form of MuPAD programs. Throughout the paper, we will use only short snippets of MuPAD code. The complete MuPAD programs will be enclosed in the appendices.
