MATLAB

MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment that lets you focus on your course work and applications, rather than on programming details. It enables you to solve many numerical problems in a fraction of the time it takes to write a program in a lower-level language such as Java, C, C++, or Fortran. You can also use MATLAB to analyze and visualize data using automation capabilities, thereby avoiding the manual repetition.

Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux
