Matlab is a numerical package for carrying out mathematical computations in a
quick and simple way.
The package contains a large number of routines from the field of numerical linear algebra,
for example solving of
systems for linear equations, computations of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and solving
least-squares problems. Additionally, many other numerical computations can be
carried out in Matlab, e.g. numerical computation of integrals, determination of
the zeros of a function, and solving initial value problems for systems of
ordinary differential equations. Note however that this selection is far from
complete it represents only a small part of all possibilities which Matlab has
to offer. Futhermore the package has a number of graphic facilities, to
visualize the results of the computations in a simple manner.
Matlab can be extended with several so-called toolboxes. These contain extra routines for
several fields of
application in science and engineering. It is also possible to write your own programs within the Matlab
environment, using the already existing routines of Matlab itself.
Matlab is extremely suitable to solve problems of moderate dimensions in a quick and reliable way. The package
is available both for Windows and UNIX-LINUX systems.
The course is meant as an introduction to Matlab and consists of a theoretical and a practical part.
