MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java™
Penn Libraries offers assistance with Matlab through workshops, small-group and individual consultations.
MATLAB is used for rapid prototyping and is used in both industries as well as universities. It has a wide range of functions to make coding easier irrespective of the application. Codes are concise and the plotting tools helps to visualize data in an effective manner. The documentation that is available as a part of the software helps in getting things done quickly.
