MATrix LABoratory : computer program for people doing numerical computation, especially linear algebra
algebra and calculus.
( MAT rix LAB oratory) A programming language for high-level, math-intensive computing. It is used for a wide variety of scientific and engineering calculations. MatLab runs on the Macintosh and Windows platforms, as well as a variety of Unix-based systems.
MATLAB (short for MATrix LABoratory) is a mathematical application package that supports numerical computation and graphics. It can be used interactively by issuing commands to a simple command-line prompt, or as a scientific programming language.
A linear algebra manipulator and viewer package.
MATLAB is a numerical computing environment and programming language. Created by The Math Works, MATLAB allows easy matrix manipulation, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs in other languages. Although it specializes in numerical computing, an optional toolbox interfaces with the Maple symbolic engine, allowing it to be part of a full computer algebra system.
