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 Mathematics department has been kind enough to offer us the use of their MatLab license for departmental use. Their license allows us the installation of MatLab for Windows and Linux.
