Mathematics Readers’ Choice — Gold Award: MATLAB
MATLAB is a high-level technical computing language and interactive environment for algorithm development, data visualization, data analysis and numeric computation. The software can be used in a range of applications, including computational biology, signal and image processing, communications, control design, test and measurement, and financial modeling and analysis. Add-on toolboxes extend the environment to solve particular classes of problems in these application areas. Features are provided for documenting and sharing work, integrating code with other languages and applications, and distributing algorithms and applications.
