What is MATLAB?

MATLAB (Matrix-Laboratory) is a tool and a development environment intended for numerical computing tasks. It contains many internally-built tasks and mathematical functions which facilitate solving different types of mathematical equations. The MATLAB programming language also helps in designing special functions and programs, in addition to many other features. MATLAB was developed by the MathWorks Company.

MATLAB enables arithmetic manipulation of matrices, handling graphics, developing different Algorithms, building graphical user interface, and communicating with programs written in other languages, such as C, C++, Java, and Fortran. The program uses several applications and other assisting tools, such as (Simulink).

MATLAB Usages:

  • Math and computation
  • Algorithm development acquisition
  • Modeling, simulation, and prototyping
  • Data analysis, exploration, and visualization
  • Scientific and engineering graphics
  • Application development, including graphical user interface building techniques
