The software is widely used in many of science and engineering fields.
MATLAB is an interactive program for numerical computation, data visualization, technical
computing.
MATLAB is supported on UNIX, Macintosh and Windows environments.
MATLAB integrates mathematical computing, visualization, and a powerful language to provide
a flexible environment for technical computing.
Mathematical computing
 constructing numerical solutions and using computers to analyze
and solve scientific and engineering problems
Visualization (imagination)  Visualizing refers to our ability to create pictures in our heads
based on text we read or words we hear. It is one of many skills that make reading
comprehension possible.
Technical computing

Technical computing is the application of the mathematical and
computational principles of scientific computing
to solve practical problems of industrial
interest. Examples:
Electrical circuit analysis,
Kirchhoff’s current law states that

Control system management
A
control system
is an interconnection of components forming a system configuration that will
provide a desired system response (dynamic system, kinetic system),
(
a
) Manmade control systems
(
b
) Natural, including biologicalcontrol systems
(
c
) Control systems whose components are both manmade and natural.
Advance mathematical computing(numerical analysis base problems, Deferential equation based
problems) etc.
Technical computing may involve the use of largescale highperformance
supercomputers
, but
in most cases, the technical problems may be solvable using modern laptops
or small
servers
.
The open architecture makes it easy to use MATLAB and its companion products to explore
data, create algorithms and create custom tools, that provide early insights and competitive
advantages.
Known for its highly optimized matrix and vector calculations, MATLAB offers an intuitive
language for expressing problems and their solutions both mathematically and visually.
Vector:
A vector of dimension n is an ordered collection of n elements, which are
called components.

not_equal (3, 5) because even though they have the same components, 3 and 5, the component
do not occur in the same order.
Row Vector
A vector is a row or column of elements.
In a row vector, the elements are entered with a space or a comma between the elements inside
the square brackets. For example,
x
= [7 –1 2 –5 8].
Column Vector
In a column vector, the elements are entered with a semicolon between the elements inside the
square brackets. For example,
x
= [7; –1; 2; –5; 8].
