The MathWorks MATLAB is a numerical computing and programming application for analyzing data, developing algorithms, creating models, building apps, and more. Technical users, such as engineers and scientists, use MATLAB in various fields, including biological sciences, systems engineering, robotics, machine learning, wireless communications, quantitative finance, and signal processing.
The software allows you to explore, model, and analyze intricate data sets. It provides built-in 2D and 3D plotting functions for viewing data in various visual formats. MATLAB also provides a programming language for expressing matrix and array mathematics. With the language, you can combine commands into scripts to automate work and reuse functions. After analyzing your data, MATLAB allows you to document and share your results with automatically generated reports you can export to multiple formats, including HTML and PDF.
The software also provides an integrated development environment IDE to create apps. With this feature, you can design the layout and program the app's capabilities, then compile it to a web app or standalone desktop app to share with other users. For example, you can build an app for Windows users in your organization to visualize patient medical data.
MATLAB has many advanced features for users working with complex data. It provides tools for analyzing data, developing algorithms, creating models, building apps, and more. While it is likely overwhelming and overkill for basic users, advanced users in scientific and engineering fields will likely be impressed with The MathWorks MATLAB.
