Frequently asked questions
MATLAB represents a programming platform and language developed by MathWorks designed for technical computing. It's an abbreviation of "matrix laboratory," referring to a matrix-based language. Matrixes are data structures used to solve many technical computing problems more efficiently than other scalar-based programming languages. With the MATLAB language, developers can analyze and explore data, do matrix manipulations, plot data and functions visually, develop and implement algorithms, create user interfaces, and complete applications. They can also create machine learning models and interact with programs written in other languages. MATLAB is the tool of choice for many data scientists, engineers, scientists, and academics because of its advanced mathematical features.
