FreeMat
By FreeMat
For Everybody

FreeMat is a free environment for rapid engineering and scientific prototyping and data processing. It is similar to commercial systems such as MATLAB from Mathworks, and IDL from Research Systems, but is Open Source. FreeMat includes several novel features such as a codeless interface to external C/C++/FORTRAN code, parallel/distributed algorithm development (via MPI), and plotting and visualization capabilities.

MATLAB
By MathWorks
For Students, Faculty

MATLAB is a numerical computing environment and programming language. Created by The MathWorks, MATLAB allows easy matrix manipulation, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs in other languages. Although it specializes in numerical computing, an optional toolbox interfaces with the Maple symbolic engine, allowing it to be part of a full computer algebra system.

Students can use the software via Vlab

Faculty and Students can access the software in on campus Public Access Computer labs, in the Middleton Library

For additional information, see: MatLab: LSU Overview.

Octave Linux
Octave
By Octave
For Everybody

GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.

Executable versions of Octave are provided for certain Linux distributions. For more information, go to the download page for Octave.  

Manual is available on the GNU Octave website.
