What Is MATLAB?
MATLAB® is a programming and numeric computing environment used by millions of engineers and scientists to analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models. MATLAB provides professionally developed toolboxes for signal and image processing, control systems, wireless communications, computational finance, robotics, deep learning and AI and more.
MATLAB combines a desktop environment tuned for iterative analysis and design processes with a high-level programming language that expresses matrix and array mathematics directly. It includes the Live Editor for creating scripts that combine code, output, and formatted text in an executable notebook. Prebuilt apps allow you to interactively perform iterative tasks. You can then automatically generate the corresponding MATLAB code to reproduce your work and add it to your script with a push of a button.
You can extend MATLAB with thousands of packages and toolboxes shared on GitHub, MATLAB File Exchange, and elsewhere. And MATLAB code and algorithms can be deployed to run on cloud and enterprise systems, used directly in Simulink®, or automatically converted to C/C++, HDL, and CUDA code to run on embedded devices.
Millions of engineers and scientists use MATLAB to analyze the data, develop the algorithms, and create the systems that shape the world around us.
At the heart of MATLAB is a high-level programming language that lets engineers and scientists express matrix and array mathematics directly.
MATLAB provides a vast library of toolboxes that spans everything from signal and image processing, control systems, wireless communications and computational finance to robotics, deep learning and AI, and more.
Created specifically for engineers and scientists, MATLAB is designed for the way you think.
Easy to learn and use, it lets you express your ideas directly and puts the tools you need at your fingertips.
Explore ideas quickly: See results and visualizations right next to the code that produced them.
And only MATLAB includes prebuilt apps – and allows you to easily build your own – for when point and click is the best way to analyze and design.
Extend MATLAB with thousands of packages and toolboxes shared on GitHub and elsewhere.
Then deploy your work on cloud and enterprise systems, into Simulink, or automatically generate code that runs on embedded devices.
From researching the world around us to creating next generation intelligent systems, millions of engineers and scientists use MATLAB to shape the future.
