Why MATLAB To predict changes in weather, climate and the global environment involves collecting large amounts of data for study and developing new mathematical models. Similarly there are so many grand challenges waiting to be solved by engineers and scientists. The solution to such problems of this magnitude will be the result of organized approaches that combine ideas and technologies. Use of computers and engineering problem solving MATLAB will be a key element in the solution process in the coming years.

introduction MATLAB is a software package for high performance numerical computation & visualization, where we can define and perform operations on both numbers and characters. It was developed by Cleave Moler. MATLAB” is derived from the word Matrix Laboratory . The basic building block of MATLAB is the matrix . The fundamental data type is the array. It is a very powerful software tool for solving various types of problems in Mathematics, Science and Engineering. Specially it is a powerful technical language for mathematical programming.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
