MATLAB, which stands for MATrix LABoratory, is an interactive system whose basic data element is an array that does not require dimensioning. It is a high-level matrix/array language with control flow statements, functions, data structures, input/output, and object-oriented programming features. Typical uses include math and computation, algorithm development, modeling, simulation, prototyping, and data analysis.
MATLAB is available to Stern faculty and PhD Students on all research computing machines.
Programs written in MATLAB are Stern GRID capable.
