MATLAB

Description

MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java™.

OSL distributes MATLAB standalone, MATLAB concurrent, and MATLAB Distributed Computing Server licenses.
