MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming.

Its key features are:

  • High-level language for numerical computation, visualization, and application development
  • Interactive environment for iterative exploration, design, and problem solving
  • Mathematical functions for linear algebra, statistics, Fourier analysis, filtering, optimization, numerical integration, and solving ordinary differential equations
  • Built-in graphics for visualizing data and tools for creating custom plots
  • Development tools for improving code quality and maintainability and maximizing performance
  • Tools for building applications with custom graphical interfaces
  • Functions for integrating MATLAB based algorithms with external applications and languages such as C, Java, .NET, and Microsoft Excel
