Matlab is a mathematics software package that is programmed in 'C' and 'C++'. Matlab
offers all of the standard math operations that come in other mathematics software
packages (such as Maple and Mathematica), in the form of functions (much like a 'C'
program). In addition, Matlab has its own high-level interpreted programming language,
which makes it a favorite among engineering professors and professional engineers.
Matlab is widely used in junior and senior level electrical and computer engineering
classes. It is also available at the Tiger-Lan locations in the engineering building.
