MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment. A proprietary programming language developed by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, Fortran and Python. 

The University of Nevada, Reno has a campus-wide license for MATLAB that includes all MATLAB toolbox add-ons, which can be installed on your personal or university-owned computer.
