Here is a tutorial that introduces you to some aspects of Freemat, a clone of MATLAB.
MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a numerical computing environment and fourth-generation programming language. Developed by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, Java, and Fortran.
Although MATLAB is intended primarily for numerical computing, an optional toolbox uses the MuPAD symbolic engine, allowing access to symbolic computing capabilities. An additional package, Simulink, adds graphical multi-domain simulation and Model-Based Design for dynamic and embedded systems.
In 2004, MATLAB had around one million users across industry and academia. MATLAB users come from various backgrounds of engineering, science, and economics. MATLAB is widely used in academic and research institutions as well as industrial enterprises.
I’ve been curious about MATLAB, especially as Yahoo Answers questions ask so much about it, but have not used it extensively, as you’ll see from the ill-informed steps of the tutorial above, but it is designed to give you an introduction into your further research.
Let’s see some simple Freemat, a MATLAB clone in action …
