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.

MatLab is available under a site license for LSU. Faculty, staff and students may use the software in campus labs.
