I'm not sure what the terms in those expressions are. If you're new to MATLAB and would like to learn the basics, have a look at the free MATLAB Onramp course. That should get you up to speed on how to use some basic functions.
Roger has an answer on calculating log returns here. You could also look for any existing function from the Financial Toolbox that would satisy your use case.
