Mathematica

Mathematica is a mathematical software system developed and distributed by Wolfram Research. It is a program that provides an environment for advanced numerical calculations, data processing, plotting, and much more. Mathematica includes a large list of features for finding a solution to almost any problem. Some of the features include libraries of mathematical functions, data visualization tools, and matrix manipulation tools. Mathematica is available on the DECS PC lab computers and DECS Compute Servers. Mathematica

MATLAB

MATLAB is a technical computing environment for high-performance numeric computation and visualization. MATLAB integrates numerical analysis, matrix computation, signal processing and graphics in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed just as they are written mathematically - without traditional programming.

MATLAB? is a high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran.

MATLAB also features a family of application-specific solutions called toolboxes. Toolboxes are collections of MATLAB functions (M-files) that extend the MATLAB environment in order to solve particular classes of problems.

To find out what toolboxes are available on a system, type the command ver on the matlab prompt.
