It is used for machine learning, signal processing, image processing, computer vision, communications, computational finance, control design, robotics, and more.

For a detailed description of MATLAB, see the MathWorks website:


The current license provides unlimited access to all MathWorks products.

Preferred method: Use MATLAB online at:
You need to create a account using your email address to access it.  This license may be used for both classwork as well as academic research.

Local installation:
