Math, Graphics, and Programming In One Platform

MATLAB is a development and I.T. software created by MathWorks. The software allows designing of mathematical equations and graphical representations through a unique programming language.

Used By Engineers and Scientists

MATLAB is made for data analysts, mathematicians, graphics designers, wireless network management or even programming enthusiasts. It has a desktop environment for processing iterative analysis, as well as the design process. The secret behind its processing power lies in the MATLAB-exclusive programming language. Its programming language is able to directly express matrix and even array mathematics. It is built with Live Editor that can write scripts which combines every written element into an executable word document. This software has MATLAB Licensed toolboxes with full mathematical features, faster computation capabilities and compatibility with other math programming software. The MATLAB app offers closer observation of different algorithms working with the same data. Users can modify their data until they reach the ideal result, then generate a new MATLAB program for reproducing or automate the data. The software can scale any analyses with few code modifications. This is helpful for implementations on clouds, clusters and even GPUs, at the same time, the scaling is made more streamlined than ever. Any new MATLAB code can be deployed to cloud and enterprise applications since its production is made ready. Users can also send them to business systems and data sources. The MATLAB codes can be run on an embedded processor, even on ASIC or FPGA processors. It turns the codes into standard programming languages such as C/C++, CUDA, and HDL. This software enables integration with designs that are model-based, particularly Simulink design. Simulink is utilized for processes like automatic code generation, embedded systems testing and even multi-domain simulation.

Mathematics Done Easily

MATLAB is intended for use by students, commercial use even personal. It has wide options regarding programming, tools and storage options. Users are also provided with enough resources to make the most out of this mathematics software.
