Description

MATLAB is a high-level technical computing language and interactive environment for algorithm development, data visualization, data analysis, and numeric computation. Using the MATLAB product, you can solve technical computing problems faster than with traditional programming languages, such as C, C++, and Fortran.

You can use MATLAB in a wide range of applications, including signal and image processing, communications, control design, test and measurement, financial modeling and analysis, and computational biology. Add-on toolboxes (collections of special-purpose MATLAB functions, available separately) extend the MATLAB environment to solve particular classes of problems in these application areas.

Vendor and Support:

Vendor: MathWorks

Support: The MathWorks has extensive online product documentation and help, including a large knowledge base of previously solved problems. A strong user community provides file exchange, newsgroups, link exchanges, and blogs. Also, support questions can be sent via email to support@mathworks.com . You will need your license number to get support.

Training:

MATLAB Onramp is free, self-paced training to get started with MATLAB in less than 2 hours. It provides a brief introduction to the MATLAB language and gives a hands-on MATLAB experience using a web-based version of MATLAB.

Tutorial and Documentation:

Tutorial: The MathWorks offer a free online tutorial that walks you through the basics of MATLAB. You can take the entire tutorial, or select an individual chapter specific to your needs. No prior MATLAB knowledge is required. This self-paced tutorial runs for approximately 90 minutes. Topics include:

  • Using MATLAB as a graphical calculator
  • Importing and extracting data
  • Visualizing data
  • Conducting computational analysis
  • Fitting data to a curve
  • Writing MATLAB programs
  • Publishing MATLAB programs

Registration for the tutorial is free. Sign up online.

Documentation: MathWorks has all their documentation (including product documentation, index of MATLAB examples, function list, tech notes, and "how-to" guides on their website. A good starting place is their support page.
